Water Protectors: The Standing Rock Camps through the Lens of
Gabriel Ayala
Presentation, Performance, and Photography Exhibit
Friday, January 12, 11:00 am

Classical guitarist Gabriel Ayala, a member of the Pascua Yaqui tribe, has traveled the world performing and teaching. When he heard about the events taking place near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, Ayala decided to stand with the Water Protectors, a group of predominately Indigenous community members who opposed the construction of a petroleum pipeline. 

Ayala was forever changed by his time at the Standing Rock Camps. His photographs, on exhibit at Amerind, document his experiences at the camps. Ayala will talk about these experiences and will perform his award-winning classical music.
