Native American Spirituality Central in the Anti-Pipeline Protest

posted on November 29, 2016

For America, Emily McFarlan Miller of Religion News Service reports on the spiritual movement stemming from the protests at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. Miller writes, “The movement started April 1 with a nearly 30-mile prayer ride on horseback from Sitting Bull’s burial site in Fort Yates, N.D., to the Sacred Stone Camp site. That prayer has continued in the camps since then: communal prayers in the morning and evening and at mealtimes; prayers in vigils and in songs; prayers while sage, cedar and tobacco are burned. And the Standing Rock Sioux have invited all people to join.”
