022 FORCE BEGETS RESISTANCE

Stories of protest from Standing Rock.

In the Summer of 2016, members from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe began organizing demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), an underground pipeline that would stretch over 1,300 miles. If completed, it would carry oil through North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. Many believed DAPL’s route would destroy sacred Sioux grounds and affect the local water source. As Indigenous tribes from all over the world united against the pipeline, private security soon used guard dogs and pepper spray on demonstrators. Local police arrived in riot gear and armored vehicles.

On the brink of halting the pipeline, voices in this episode tell stories of resisting DAPL physically and spiritually.

ABOUT

Everything is Stories

EVERYTHING IS STORIES

An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Created by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
