Nick Estes talks about his new book Our History Is The Future, where he traces how two centuries of Indigenous resistance led to the #NoDAPL movement where Water Protectors blocked the construction of an oil pipeline at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota.
Nick Estes is Kul Wicasa and a citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe. He is an Assistant Professor in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. For 2017-2018, Estes was the American Democracy Fellow at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University. His research engages colonialism and global Indigenous histories, with a focus on decolonization, environmental justice, anti-capitalism, and the Oceti Sakowin.
