Statement in Solidarity with Standing Rock

The Executive Committee unanimously passed the following resolution, which was announced and read at the annual meeting.

The American Society for Ethnohistory, a scholarly organization that began with a group of researchers who aided Native communities in claims against the U.S. Government during the Claims Commissions of the 1950s, stands in solidarity with the Oceti Sakowin Oyate (Great Sioux Nation), the Standing Rock Sioux, and the numerous other Native people and communities who oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline on grounds that it violates the legitimate sovereignty of the Standing Rock Sioux to protect water and cultural sites. Native peoples like the Sioux are integral parts of our nation’s fabric, with unique and valuable knowledge to contribute to pressing problems of mutual concern. Too often in our history their voices have been ignored, their lands forcibly taken, and their culture denigrated. In this conflict, they and all Native peoples deserve a sincere hearing of their concerns and a meaningful place at the negotiation table. The Society additionally decries the use of force by authorities in attempting to remove protectors from the site.

The Executive Committee urges its members to take action and support the water protectors at the Oceti Sakowin Camp.
