Black Lives Matter Delegation Returns from Standing Rock Camp

HeadlineAug 30, 2016

Members of nearly 100 tribal nations from across the United States and Canada have arrived at the ongoing Sacred Stone Spirit Camp, which is blocking the construction of the 1,172-mile pipeline that would transport 500,000 barrels of Bakken oil from North Dakota to Illinois. Among those who have traveled to Standing Rock is a delegation from Black Lives Matter. This is Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, speaking as they filmed the construction site.

Janaya Khan: “Here we are at Standing Rock at the site of resistance. We were invited, and, by the grace of the creator, we’re here channeling Black Lives Matter on indigenous land, following indigenous and native leadership.”
