Arizona Tribes Stand In Solidarity With Standing Rock Sioux


Tribal members across the country are rallying in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. For many in Arizona the conflict hits home.

Several tribes in Arizona have stood up to industry to protect the lands they consider sacred — places like the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers near Grand Canyon and Oak Flat east of Phoenix.

Hopi artist Ronald Lewis Laban said he sees it as his duty to protect the earth and what’s sacred.
