There is a stirring within our nation, our nations within nations. Indigenous communities who have long felt ignored, cast aside, and silenced are pushing, clawing, demanding to be seen as part of us—and the crisis we are in. Those at Standing Rock and at hundreds of other places are not only working to save our water, our land, our earth, and our sky, but to take their rightful place in our myths and histories. We owe it to them, our past, and our future, to push their art, culture, and ideas to the forefront of our own current thoughts.
