Rain didn’t stop nearly 70 people from making their way to the University of Iowa Pentacrest to attend a protest organized by the Native American Student Association.
The irony of the pouring rain falling on the Nebi Bemetesiani (Water is Life) banner was not lost of those in attendance. Huddled on the steps of the Old Capitol Building, protesters listened to several speakers including members of the Meskwaki tribe and farm owners who have been directly impacted by pipeline construction.
The rally was cut short because of lightning, but the Native American Student Association is planning another rally on Oct. 10; more details can be found at Nasa.org.uiowa.edu.
Strengthen • Grow • Evolve is a collaborative campaign led by two Iowa City-based arts nonprofits, The Englert Theatre and FilmScene that seeks a major reinvestment to strengthen the arts through modern and historic venues, innovative programming, and new models of collaboration.
