TULSA – She is up for auction. She is the first of potentially many more to be sold. She is Standing with Standing Rock.
She is a representation of the strength, beauty and courage of the people, says Comanche artist Timothy Nevaquaya. She represents the people of the Nations gathered at the Standing Rock Reservation to protect the waters of the Missouri River from the “Black Snake” of the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
Nevaquaya is auctioning the original 9”x12” oil painting online via his Facebook page to raise funds to support the Water Protectors camped near Cannon Ball, South Dakota.
