Standing Rock syllabus

The NYC for Standing Rock committee has created a resource for understanding the controversies and protest surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline.

“This syllabus brings together the work of Indigenous and allied activists and scholars: anthropologists, historians, environmental scientists, and legal scholars, all of whom contribute important insights into the conflicts between Indigenous sovereignty and resource extraction.”

The syllabus contains key search terms, maps, a timeline of U.S. settler colonialism, and suggested reading arrange by theme and topic.
