#NoDAPL presents art, artifacts, and supportive media regarding the Indigenous resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline planned to cut through the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

The drawings, paintings, and artifacts presented were created from life during the month of September 2016, when the artist lived at the Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock.

In early 2016, the US Army Corps of Engineers approved the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). The pipeline is 1,172 miles long project that would carry crude oil from the Bakken region of North Dakota across four states, crossing underneath the Missouri River over the Ogallala Aquifer. By December 2016, more than 10,000 people from over 300 tribal nations had gathered at Standing Rock.
