 A panoramic shot of the Oceti Sakowin Camp, the largest camp of Water Protectors at the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota, USA. A delegation traveled here over the weekend to deliver a collection of prayers and support from the worldwide URI community, and to participate in a Day of Interfaith Prayer on December 4. The URI delegation was part of an historical and monumental gathering of people from countries, faith traditions, and cultures all around the world showing solidarity with those protecting the sacred water source for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
