Photo Essay Standing Strong at Standing Rock

Editor’s note: Photojournalist Michael Nigro was at Oceti Sakowin Camp in Standing Rock, North Dakota, for Truthdig Sunday and captured images of the reactions of the “water protectors” to news that the Dakota Access pipeline will not pass through the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and philosopher-activist Cornel West were among those who joined the protectors. See Truthdig’s ongoing coverage of the #NoDAPL protests here.
