On PBS 'New Mexico Water Protectors at Standing Rock'

Navajo filmmaker Tony Estrada was at the Oceti Sakowin, Rosebud Sioux, Hunkpapa Sioux and Sacred Stone camps from November through December, conducting interviews with the Sioux, the spiritual leaders, the veterans, and other indigenous peoples who came to Standing Rock.

This short documentary, commissioned by New Mexico PBS, offers insights from some of the many New Mexico water protectors who traveled to Standing Rock and stood in support with the Standing Rock Sioux against the Dakota Access Pipeline. This doc first aired last Friday, February 10th, on "New Mexico in Focus", on KNME, Ch. 5.1. A more comprehensive documentary exploring this growing movement birthed from Standing Rock will follow.
