"Love Water, Not Oil" with Dale Benjamin American Horse Jr., 8x10" black glass ambrotype in the wet plate collodion process.
The Standing Rock Sioux nation along with the support of many other tribes is attempting to push back the Dakota Access Pipeline here in North Dakota. Dale has been in the forefront of the resistance and made national news last week for his efforts.
Dale explained to me that "Mni Wiconi" means "Water is Life" and those words ring so true.
