"Weaves a much needed and moving story. The book comes alive through the eloquent voices of its Native American organizers, and Ekberzade creates an intimate window into the lives of her subjects.

People from many Native American tribes were joined by non-tribal environmentalists, including US army veterans, all of them standing in solidarity with the Lakota. Then, in early 2017, the protest was disbanded using brutal force. And that is when the real struggle began.
