Standing with Standing Rock – Update

October 19, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

An auction to benefit the tribes gathered at Standing Rock—also called Sacred Rock—may not have raised a lot of cash, but it did help us in the audience to have a clearer sense of what is happening.

As they continue to protect the waters of the Missouri River, and ultimately, of the Mississippi, into which it flows, the people at Standing Rock are no longer permitted to leave the encampment to go and offer prayers where the digging for the pipeline is continuing, nearby.
