Event Details

In honor of the 7th Annual Campus Ecofeminism Summit, join the Women’s Resources Center, together with cosponsoring units, for a keynote lecture from LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Lakota historian, activist, and Director of the Sacred Stone Camp at Standing Rock.

Ladonna Brave Bull Allard is a Lakota historian and activist. In April 2016, she founded the first resistance camp of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, Sacred Stones, aimed at halting the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota. Allard is an enrolled member of, and former historical preservation officer for, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Her people are Inhunktonwan from the Jamestown Valley, Hunkpapa and Blackfoot. While there are now multiple water protector camps at the Standing Rock, Sacred Stone, the first camp, is on Allard’s private property. Out of this grew the global Dakota Access Pipeline protests. By December 2016, more than 10,000 indigenous people and environmental activists were camping in the area. This movement has become the largest intertribal alliance on the American continent in centuries, and possibly ever, with over 200 tribal nations represented.

The lecture will be followed by a Q & A. Local campus and community organizations will be offering resources and information.

Cosponsored by: Unit One Allen Hall, Native American House, Native American and Indigenous Student Organization (NAISO), and YWCA at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
