In 2016 a billion dollar project to transfer crude oil from North Dakota to the midwest set off a global response in which thousands flocked to stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. While the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline made national headlines, I was interested in what the movement meant to Montanans. Like North Dakota, Montana has a large American Indian population. It also has a large population of people who depend on the natural resource industry. I visited the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation twice to document how Montanans, residents and workers were impacted by the months long protest.


In addition to this photo story I contributed five articles for the Billings Gazette as well as produced a 360-video for the Gazette's website.
