Bismarck, North Dakota - Sept 8, 2016
Issabella Watts, 10, shows solidarity with the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock. She and her family traveled up from the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Watts said that water matters to her because "we drink it and shower with it. If we shower with oil, we'll kill ourselves."
In a historic gathering of more than a hundred Native American tribes from across North America, protestors are rallying to stop the pipeline they fear will poison the Missouri River, which runs through the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.
