Between September 9th and 16th 2016, I stayed at the front line camp at the Sacred Stone protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. They called the camp Sacred Ground because they formed the camp after protecting a burial site that was desecrated by bulldozers on September 3rd. After being maced and attacked by dogs, the water protectors set up camp across Highway 1806 to stand between the pipeline and the Missouri River. This serves as a document of the camp as it was destroyed by the police in late October 2016.
