“For more than a year, members of the Standing Rock Sioux nation, called Water Protectors, have resisted the Dakota Access Pipeline, which will run underneath the Missouri River, the tribe’s main source of water. My talk will reflect on how the Buddhist path has led me to listen deeply and respond in vow to the witness of native Water Protectors.” – Rev. Satya Cynthia Scott
