Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock vs the Dakota Access Pipeline

Marking the three year anniversary of the beginning of the historic 9 month long protest and standoff at Standing Rock against a construction of a pipeline; today we are joined by historian Nick Estes who was part of the resistance and continues being part of it to continue fighting against the construction of the pipeline.

Nick Estes wrote a book that has put the resistance at Standing Rock in context with the long tradition of indigenous resistance. The book is called Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock vs the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.
