Beyond Standing Rock Closing Panel Discussion

Protecting Chaco Canyon

December 1, 2019 1:00 pm through 2:00 pm

Join us for the closing of Beyond Standing Rock, a temporary exhibition at MIAC that explores the many health and sacred land infringements made upon Native American sovereignty, including the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in North Dakota. The panel discussion will include Acoma Pueblo Governor Brian Vallo, Arden Kucate (Zuni Pueblo Tribal Councilman and culture expert), and Mark Mitchell (former governor and co-chair of the All Pueblo Council of Governors’ Natural Resources Committee). The panel will focus on recent efforts to protect Chaco Canyon from drilling and fracking, and the success Tribal governments have had in delaying those plans for at least another decade.
