Call for Submissions:Dear Turtle Talk Community,
The University of Washington Native American Law Student Association (NALSA) is asking for photos (digital or print) documenting the myriad of ways & moments during which native people gathered in direct action opposing the DAPL protest. As law students, we hope one day to advance causes for Indian Country in the courtroom, but today we want to celebrate and feature the strength and character shown at the “Stop DAPL” encampment through a photography exhibition.
On the first floor of our Law building, there exists a common space that rotates art each 3 to 6 months. The NALSA of the University of Washington will select 7 to 10 of the submissions for display (printing them if not already printed) to recognize the ongoing effort to protect Native American sacred space. The print will be in this art space for the next 3 to 6 months with acknowledgement to the photographer.
Once the “Stop DAPL” encampment exhibition is complete, NALSA will return the printed piece to the contributor as a token of our appreciation. Or in the alternative, the contributor could donate it to our student Association for auction at our annual dinner in Feb. 2017.
With heartfelt thanks,
University of Washington Native Law Students.
