Lesson 5: Power of the People: #NoMoreDAPL and #ReZpectOurWater

This lesson can be used in middle and high school classes and will take approximately 50 minutes to teach. In this lesson students will be introduced to the who, what, when, and where of the No More DAPL movement and will work as a class to uncover the why and greater significance of these protests and the movement. Students will first be introduced to Standing Rock as sacred land for the Dakota people of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and will uncover the historical, environmental, and spiritual motivations behind the movement. During this lesson, students will start to form concrete connections between sacred land, multi-faceted threats to sacred land, and the role of activism in protecting sacred land.
