dc.description.abstractThe recent protests by Native activists on the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota against construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline have drawn national and global attention to the continued mistreatment of Indigenous peoples in the United States. It is considered one of the most successful protests in recent history and as such, it has invited comparison to previous Native protest movements, particularly those during the Red Power era, which was at its height during the nineteen-seventies. Although the two movements are different in many respects, they address similar issues and apply similar techniques to achieve their goals. These include the way they attempt to gain publicity, their emphasis on larger issues facing Native communities across the United States, and how protesters identify themselves and their activism as Native.
