Interview with Levi Rickert: New photo exhibit on Standing Rock being hosted at the Grand Rapids African American Museum and Archives

November 12, 2019

We recently did an interview with Levi Rickert, who is the Publisher/Editor of Native News Online. Like so many indigenous people, Levi went to Standing Rock in the fall of 2016, to be part of the resistance to an oil pipeline that would go through tribal land in North Dakota.

In the interview we talk about what inspired him to put together a photo exhibit, what kinds of things stood out to him while being at Standing Rock, how that resistance is connected to indigenous resistance to pipelines across the country, even Line 5 in Michigan, and why this history is so important to show and talk about.

The exhibit is now up at the Grand Rapids African American Museum and Archives and will be up until December 7.
