Jacqueline Keeler, author of Standoff: Standing Rock, the Bundy Movement, and the American Story of Sacred Lands talks with Nick Estes, co-founder of The Red Nation.
In 2016, the world witnessed two standoffs in 2016: the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s protest against an oil pipeline in North Dakota and the armed takeover of Oregon’s Malheur Wildlife Refuge led by the Bundy family. These events unfolded in vastly different ways, from media coverage to the reactions of law enforcement. In Standoff, Jacqueline Keeler examines these episodes as two sides of the same story that created America and its deep-rooted cultural conflicts.
