The panel of individuals who have been to Standing Rock and are leaders and organizers in the community just ended. They all shared their incredible experiences of what it was like to be at Standing Rock and what they were able to learn from it. They all emphasized the importance of telling our own stories and centerin indigenous people in how we understand the land and how we take care of our water and nature. It was really amazing to be in the presence of so many incredible individuals who also provided the audience with resources on how to get involved and where to find ways to be allies and get involved with so many different communities around Seattle and beyond.
