Protected: Hope Inside the Fire

November 2016 – As protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline became increasingly heated, images of burning cars and masked men were spattered across mainstream media networks. However, behind the headline, a pure and singular spiritual camp was committing itself in prayer to save the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s only water supply.

“Hope Inside the Fire” is a testament to the power of the Natives Americans’ peaceful prayer, that was not covered by other outlets. It is an exploration of the humble act of looking to something bigger than oneself to change circumstance and the struggle of faith that inherently carries: forgiving when hurt, doing good in the face of evil and showing love to an enemy.
