an excerpt:

Last weekend, as thousands of Indigenous protesters continued their efforts to ward off construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a delegation from another life-and-death struggle visited the Native encampments in Standing Rock, North Dakota. While there have been numerous expressions of solidarity between Black Lives Matter organizers and Indigenous activists, this meeting marked a historic moment, as organizers from different fronts of struggle met in a place that has galvanized Native resistance to environmental racism in the United States. This week, Miski Noor, an organizer with Black Lives Matter Minneapolis, took a moment to discuss the trip with Truthout, and to explain why she and others felt the journey was necessary.
