ST. GEORGE, Utah - + Video – Joan Runs Through is the lead forensic analyst for the Computer Crime Lab at Dixie State University in St. George, Utah. Although Runs Through is a member of the Assiniboine Tribe, she believes it’s up to all tribes to stand together in protecting the water and lands given to them. The #NoDAPL protest has been underway at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation for several months, and Joan said it’s time they join with other tribes. She spoke about the power of peaceful protest and understanding standing rock at DSU on December 8. 

Joan and her family plan to travel to North Dakota during Christmas break to join with other tribes in unity for the cause of protecting the water and sacred lands.  Here is her reasons for standing in solidarity with Standing Rock.
