The following recordings were captured at the Standing Rock pipeline protest during December 2016 at the Oceti Sakowin Camp and the Cannonball Gymnasium. Recorded on a Tascam Dr40 using the built in microphones. If you weren’t able to visit or take part in the Standing Rock / DAPL water protest, you can listen to the stories of those that were there. All these audio recordings were taken on location by me or Mike Chappelear and Jason Allery. We traveled to Standing Rock at the same time as the Veterans for Standing Rock so many of the people we talked to are Veterans.
