Standing Rock | Oceti Sakowin Camp | Day 2

One day two of my stay at Oceti Sakowin Camp I witnessed my first direct action. A group of water protectors and veterans marched to the police barricade near the bridge. Heavy snow and winds made it difficult to stay dry or keep debris from getting on the lens. In the veteran area of the camp there seemed to be two factions: one for marching to the bridge and one against it. Ultimately hundreds stood on the road. I left the action after an hour and a half, not knowing how long it would continue into the evening, and needing to return to warmth. Some photos show the camp I was lucky to sleep in, complete with warm yurts supplied by BOLD Nebraska. You can donate to Oceti Sakowin Camp here. | Photos from 12-05-2016
