The Marking of Standing Rock Photo Exhibition

January 21 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

During the 2016 Standing Rock resistance to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline, American Indian journalist, Levi Rickert, knew the largest American Indian movement since the 1973 Wounded Knee was unfolding. Rickert, the publisher and editor of Native News Online, covered the emergence of the movement from Standing Rock, Washington, DC, to the steps of Michigan’s capitol. The results of his photo-journalist work yielded over 1,500 photographs that capture the intensity of the movement. The exhibit, Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement provides a glimpse of the struggle for indigenous water rights and tribal sovereignty. Using the exhibit, Rickert will discuss his experience at Standing Rock and the process of creating an exhibit to chronicle the resistance. Please join us for a reception at 6:15 pm followed by the presentation at 7:00 pm. Reception is sponsored by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation.
