When I was 8 years-old, an enormous oil deposit was discovered just a few hours from my community and our lives changed forever. What was once a quiet Native American town in North Dakota became filled with hundreds of men who’d come to work in the oil fields and brought with them loud trucks, drug use, and sex trafficking.
The young people of New Town have had enough. We call ourselves the Modern Day Warriors, committed to defending Mother Earth. Please sign our petition to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
