STANDING ROCK SIOUX RESERVATION, N.D. — Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Joel Rafael,
and the late John Trudell’s band Bad Dog will perform a benefit concert on Sunday, November 27, 2016, for the Water Protectors and the Standing Rock community. The concert will be held at Prairie Knights Pavilion in Fort Yates, ND.
Tickets can be purchased thru StarTickets by phone 800-585-3737, or online here.
The concert is free for the Standing Rock community and Water Protectors. Next week, cards will be distributed to the Water Protectors in the camps and Standing Rock community that can be exchanged for complimentary tickets at the Casino box office. All gross proceeds from the concert public ticket sales will benefit the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their efforts to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline and prepare the camps for winter.
The Oceti Sakowin Camp is a historic gathering of Native nations, friends, and allies, from all walks of life, standing in solidarity to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline.
“Just as we give thanks for our good fortune and the bounty of our lives as Americans, let us thank the Native people who are gathered here at Standing Rock to protect the natural world and defend our place in it,” said Jackson Browne.
“I’m proud to be standing in support of the courageous and dedicated Water Protectors at Standing Rock. This movement is growing by the day with solidarity actions happening around the country, yet the media isn’t covering it nearly enough. Our hope is that this concert will help bring more awareness and media attention to the issues being raised at Standing Rock, and to put pressure on The Obama Administration to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline until protection of sacred sites is ensured,” said Bonnie Raitt.
“We are honored to have these great artists stand with us!” says Ladonna Brave Bull Allard, founder of the Standing Rock Sioux Camp at Sacred Stone, and who will be one of the speakers at the concert.
Those who can travel to North Dakota are invited to Stand in Solidarity with Standing Rock on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at Prairie Knights Pavilion at 6:30 PM.
