The Darrell Krueger Library at Winona State University, in anticipation of Indigenous People's Day on Oct. 9th, is exhibiting a series of photographs taken during the standing Rock movement in North Dakota last year.
The exhibit, entitled "Honoring The Protectors: Images from Standing Rock," is located on the first floor of the library and can be viewed during library hours.
The exhibit originally was shown at In Progress, a non-profit arts group in St. Paul dedicated to paving the way for new voices.
The power of peacefully and prayerfully standing together in a unified message is what "Honoring the Protectors" exhibit series is about. The exhibit acknowledges the experiences of the travelers to the Standing Rock reservation through their photos, and continues the efforts to educate and raise awareness about indigenous rights in the United States.
