Bismarck, North Dakota
Members of the Onondaga Nation, including, from left, Amber Lane, her sons Jaxon Lane, 5, and JJ Lane, 10, and Tristyn Jock listen to a member of their nation speak about their mission during the on-going protests near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
When visitors turn off a narrow North Dakota highway and drive into the Sacred Stone camp where thousands have come to protest an oil pipeline, they thread through an arcade of flags whipping in the North Dakota wind. Each represent one of 280 Native American tribes that have flocked here in what activists are calling the largest, most diverse tribal action in at least a century, perhaps since Little Bighorn.
