On Sunday 1/22/17 The Bridge with Kira crew met with some of the members of the International Indigenous Youth Council to ask them to articulate what brought them to Washington, D.C. These extraordinary young people have been camped at Standing Rock to protect the drinking water of 18 million people from the greed of Big Oil. They are tired but have no plans to give up any time soon. These compassionate and kind young people not only want to co-create a better future but are creating a better present. The time we spent with IIYC was filled with song, hugs, words of love and encouragement and shared goals and dreams.
