The DePaul Humanities Center is pleased to announce that it will bestow its annual Humanities Laureate Award to the Natives at Standing Rock. This is the first time that the award has been given not to an individual but to a community—in recognition of the ethical, political, and cultural importance of that community’s ongoing struggle, and in celebration of the role that the arts and humanities play in establishing such a strong and important culture and people. To accept the award on behalf of the Natives at Standing Rock, the Humanities Center welcomes Bobbi Jean Three Legs, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, and Dallas Goldtooth for an evening of discussion and reflection on the Dakota Access Pipeline, the history of the land in question, the spirit of the Sioux Nation and the countless groups that have joined in solidarity, and the possible futures that lie ahead for us all. Please join us to add your voice to the conversation and the celebration!
