Outside of the Pittsburgh convention center where President Trump was speaking in late October, more than 50 indigenous leaders gathered to lead a water ceremony and march through downtown.

The action was part of a programming series called Power Beyond Extraction planned to coincide with the Shale Insight conference, an annual meeting about the future of energy, hosted by the petrochemical industry. The events were organized by a traveling pop-up museum called The Natural History Museum.
