A group of U‑M students that includes four Stamps undergraduates is releasing a #NODAPL literary zine with an event at North Quad on Friday, November 18.
The group, Michigan Solidarity With Standing Rock, includes U‑M students Noor Ahmad, Katey Carey, Tegwyn John, Zach Kolodziej (Stamps BFA in Interarts Performance2017), Jay Moskowitz (Stamps BFA 2017, Elena Mosher (Stamps Minor 2017), Johnny Petoskey, and Megan Lewis Smith (Stamps BFA 2017).
The zine and release event were made possible with funding from Arts at Michigan, North Quad Event Funding, and the Barger Leadership Institute Small Grant Award.
There will be free food for dinner, literature, patches, and buttons, as well as performances of ceremony and song by indigenous dancers and drummers. Additionally, listening stations will be set up for folks to hear interviews collected from water protectors at Standing Rock, and the sounds of a moon dance ceremony.
This event is specifically geared towards folks who are interested in learning more about the Standing Rock movement and indigenous resistance against colonization. Event organizers and students who are involved in the movement will be present to answer questions. Please check out our Facebook event for more info and a statement from the group.
