On this Indigenous People’s Day, we open our ears to the words and songs of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and elsewhere around the world.
We are grateful to the DP reader who steered us to an essay by Chickasaw Nation writer-in-residence Linda Hogan, excerpted below. The images are from a No Dakota Access Movement video that can be accessed by clicking within any of the frames.
We also take time today to honor the memory of Berta Cáceres and other brave protectors of sacred and essential resources who have been murdered over the past year by the agents of ecocidal capitalism. Let us wake up!
