On Friday, Nov. 25th & Nov. 26th people in Standing Rock, North Dakota were treated to a beautiful melding of activists and artists coming together to raise money to aide the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The two-day fundraiser gave us great performances by musicians such as Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, Frank Waln, Supaman, Scatter Their Own, Quese IMC, Naataanii Means, and Flute Player Darren Thompson.

Reve Kalell from Colorado kicked things off for the evening.

Hellnback, a member of the Samson Cree Nation, traveled all the way from Canada to dazzle the crowd with his linguistic prowess.

And you know folks were hype for the one and only Supaman!

And here are some great stills from the concert

It looks like a great time for a great cause!

Even if you weren't able to be there at the concert, you can still find ways to help the cause. For more information visit our previous post 10 Ways You Can Help the Standing Rock Sioux Fight the Dakota Access Pipeline.
