Gyorgy Toth made an interview with political activist Christine Nobiss, aka Sikowis, who is of Plains Cree–Saulteaux and Hungarian ancestry. For the last 5 years, Christine has been engaged in indigenous rights, race relations and environmental activism in what is now the United States. For years, she was a Water Protector in the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. She also co-founded and co-directed several non-profit organizations engaged in education and mobilization for the protection of the environment, protecting indigenous women’s rights and amplifying their voices, and increasing Native American political participation in voting and running for office. Most recently, Christine has led a demonstration that called on the state of Iowa’s government to remove from its capitol building some art that glorified colonialism and the dispossession of Native Americans.
Oral history interview. Closed captioning available. Includes images, mostly photographs, but also some visual artwork.
