Tó éí iiná: Water is Life, The Dakota Access Pipeline, Navajo National Sovereignty, and Pipelines as Kin

This presentation examines the role of kinship and resistance as a means of interrogating pipeline infrastructure in Native and Indigenous communities. From the fierce protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock in 2016 to the construction of the Navajo Gallup Water Supply Project implemented by the Navajo Nation, this presentation grapples with kinship, solidarity, and the wellbeing of both human and other-than-human relations.
