"Awake" tells the dramatic story of the native-led peaceful resistance at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in 2016. Tens of thousands of activists traveled to North Dakota from all over the world to take a stand alongside the "water protectors"-- activists opposing construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline would transport fracked oil from North Dakota's Bakken oil fields directly underneath the Missouri River on sovereign Lakota land, the only water source for the Standing Rock reservation and the drinking water source for 17 million Americans downstream. Free and open to the public.
