Excited that some photographs created in Standing Rock last year will be included at the 2017 Noble Peace Prize Forum exhibit “Across Dividing Lines” in Oslo, Norway. Thank you Stephanie Hope Smith for putting the call out, and to Jonathan and Romin for looping me in. Stephanie will be a panel speaker, discussing her work as a conciliator and mediator in regard to tribal nations.
Other journalists and documentarians covering the conflict will have images up, including Romin Lee Johnson and Jonathan Klett, among others. The imagery will be supporting materials for a panel discussion and two days of high level closed door talks. One of the forum’s main points will be to celebrate the work of activist Rigoberta Menchú, who won the Noble Peace Prize 25 years ago in 1992 for her work with environmental and indigenous rights in Guatemala. She will also be speaking on Monday, December 11 2017, which will be streamed live by the Noble people.
More about the inspiring and heart breaking history of Rigoberta’s career ongoing fight for justice and equality begins in this link on the Noble site… https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1992/tum-bio.html
