In this interview we meet Eryn Wise, 26, a young two-spirit (LGBTQ) Native American leader who’s been on the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests since last year. She is Jicarilla Apache and Laguna Pueblo, an organizer for Honor the Earth, and the media coordinator for the International Indigenous Youth Council and Sacred Stone Camp. She grew up in Dulce, New Mexico. She explains the connection between environmental activism, being a feminist, and the Obama administration’s treatment of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
