PORTRAIT SERIES FOR JACK HEALY PIECE
Cannon Ball, North Dakota --
Kei Kurimoto, who has no tribal affiliation, stays warm in donated winter clothes. “The moment I stepped on to this land you just felt the healing," she said, "We have this amazing community that was birthed out of nothing. One of the elder grandmothers, she has this saying that we’re in labor and we’re birthing a new nation.”
With the North Dakota winter setting in, protestors at the Oceti Sakowin Camp have dug in as the Dakota Access pipeline, which they have been protesting since early 2016, nears completion at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball Rivers.
