7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27, 2017

A panel of approximately 10-12 Native American activist leaders will present a panel titled "Standing Rock and Beyond: Indigenous Leadership and Strategies for Coming Struggles" at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27 at Herrick Chapel.

Standing Rock has been one of the highest profile and most successful nonviolent resistance movements in recent history. Though there have been significant setbacks with President Trump's executive orders on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) the fight is still happening today in Standing Rock and in Iowa. These issues connect to much wider and ongoing issues of indigenous rights and defending the environment.

This event is sponsored by the Wilson Center for Innovation and Leadership, Religious Studies Department, Institute for Global Engagement, Center for Prairie Studies, Peace and Conflict Studies, the Dean's Office, and the Rosenfield Program.
