Loren Lincoln, a member of the Round Valley Indian Tribes, is currently on his second stint at Standing Rock, where he is braving the snow and the wrath of the North Dakota cops.
“I’m here for my kids; I’m here for the people back home who can’t be out here right now,” Loren says. “My experience of growing up on the reservation has given me the instinct to come fight for all indigenous people who are part of this struggle.”
Loren originally traveled to Standing Rock in September with his family. He returned in November. At the annual Alcatraz Island sunrise ceremony, on Thanksgiving Day, his mother spoke movingly about the need to support her son and other young warriors on the Standing Rock front lines.
Please help Loren have the supplies he needs to brave the bitter cold in North Dakota and continue to stand up for justice in the face of repression.
