Voices from Standing Rock: “Fear is a Disease” – Youth Radio


Voices from Standing Rock: “Fear is a Disease” – Youth Radio:

AW: What are some of your fondest memories of Standing Rock so far?

SS: The friends. The round dances. The family everywhere now.

AW: What is it like being a young woman here?

SS: It’s definitely intimidating, it really is. Like when you get up, you go walk around ask people if they need help. You hear some scary stuff just about… women in general. Women are endangered, you know? It’s intimidating, but you just gotta hold your own. We can’t be out here being scared because fear is a disease.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
