“Whilst your local indigenous voice is being silenced, it is your global indigenous voice that will be heard.”

They were the words of an indigenous school in Whakatāne, New Zealand, who held a stirring haka in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, who are protesting over a controversial new oil pipeline in the USA.

Members of the Sioux tribe say the Dakota Access pipeline will desecrate sacred land and harm water resources.
