I am old enough to have witnessed the small beginnings of both the feminist and civil-rights movements. Though my physical appearance reflects my Scotch-Irish ancestry, I am also Native American (Cherokee and Seminole, as nearly as I can figure out from research and family stories). Both the land and the culture of my ancestors on my mother’s side were stolen. We will not allow the theft of our water and the desecration of our sacred sites.
I predict that the protest at Standing Rock will burgeon into a movement every bit as historic and large as those that were fought for the civil rights of women and minorities. Thanks to reporters like Basha Cohen and the North Denver Tribune who are presenting information that the mainstream media ignores.
