For the March Art Crawl, Watkins presents Amber Ward’s No Spiritual Surrender: Standing Rock, which chronicles indigenous resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in Cannonball, North Dakota. This work was made during three visits to the site of the resistance camps during the fall and winter of 2016. During this time, more than 300 tribes came together in peaceful and prayerful opposition to stop the pipeline — or the “Black Snake,” as they call it — from destroying Unci Maka, or “Grandmother Earth.” This convergence has ignited a rebirth of Native American, First Nation, and Aboriginal culture.
Amber Woolson is an Indigenous and Mexican American documentarian and photography major at Watkins College of Art.
