7 Ways to Support Standing Rock’s Protest Against the Dakota Access Pipeline
What were the conditions like for the Sioux at the Standing Rock Reservation? The conditions were very poor. Many of the Indians on the reservation suffered from disease and illness, had very worn or minimal clothes to protect them from harsh temperatures, and rations of food.
IMPORTANT FIGURES Standing Rock is the birthplace of Sitting Bull (1831-1890), one of the most widely recognized figures in Native American history. Two burial sites memorialize Sitting Bull. The original burial site is located at Fort Yates, North Dakota and features a rock and bronze sign.

In the area are sacred stones where our ancestors went to pray for good direction, strength and protection for the coming year. Those stones are still there, and our people still go there today,” explains Eagle. The Water Protectors’ camp is named Sacred Stone Camp for this location.
After Standing Rock, activists went on to other protests — the Line 3 protest in the North, the Bayou Bridge protest in the South. Others started to work on divestment from pipelines, raising awareness of indigenous rights, and working on broader environmental and social causes around the country.
The people of Standing Rock, often called Sioux, are members of the Dakota and Lakota nations. “Dakota” and “Lakota” mean “friends” or “allies.” The people of these nations are often called “Sioux”, a term that dates back to the seventeenth century when the people were living in the Great Lakes area.
