Debra White Plume:
Lewis n Clark Reenactment did not put their boats back in the water after we had a confrontation over their propaganda lies on Manifest Destiny. We all know they were really exploring for gold, silver, water, and other parts of Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth). We protested at their every stop in order to provide our side of the story, the real story of the DAWN OF GENOCIDE. Sometimes people just have to take a stand, take risks, do Direct Action, in order to tell the truth.
Video: In the fall of 2004, we travel to Bismarck, ND, to document a stand against a Lewis and Clark celebration of the 200-year anniversary of the popular exploration.
This out-take from the feature "Standing Silent Nation" shares some direct action from members of the Lakota nation, who spend this cold day educating others about their side of the history.
