Support the Detroit Anishinaabe Delegation to Standing Rock

Posted on November 08, 2016

Emergence Media supports the Detroit Delegation to Standing Rock in North Dakota. The Standing Rock tribe’s members and hundreds of other Native people have been protesting the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline since April. The delegation, planned by Aadizookaan and the Detroit Anishinaabe Family, will bring much needed supplies to the Standing Rock camp, provide workshops to boost moral, and build indigenous support.


You can support the delegation by purchasing this limited edition #WATERISLIFE Poster, designed and printed by Elijah Ford in collaboration with the Aadizookaan and ill Weaver.  All proceeds from poster sales will go towards the Anishinaabe delegation to Standing Rock. Specifically, we will create zip -up hoodies printed with this design for members of the delegation and as gifts to give the water protectors at Standing Rock to keep them warm through the cold winter months.

This delegation will also make connections between the struggle in Standing Rock to the water warrior movements here on Anishinaabe land/Detroit addressing issues such as mass water shutoffs, water privatization, poisoning of water in Flint, and the building of Line 5 in Michigan.

We have a limited number of posters, so get yours today!
