Winter Count is a union of primarily Indigenous artists cultivating awareness, respect, honor and protection for land and water, for all the living things that have lived here, and for all the living things to come. Due to the imminent threat to water and land in Standing Rock, ND Winter Count is currently focusing work around this place. In 2016, audio and video was gathered at the Oceti Sakowin camp, Missouri and Cannonball Rivers, Lake Oahe, the DAPL route, the Bakken oil fields, Lake Sakakawea, and the land holding all these things.

‘Today we see natural cycles of life disrupted by the extraction and transportation of what we have come to call resources from the land.’
