I recently watched this documentary, 'Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock,' in Port Angeles, WA with about 50 people at the Lower Elwha Klallam tribal center. It was very powerful. I went with my friend Terry D. who spent 100 days at Standing Rock. This should be on mainstream television, but of course it won't be. America, wake up!
