10 Images From Closing Day of the Cowboy and Indian Alliance Protest in Washington
It was an extravaganza of solidarity kicked off by Earth Day and winding up on Saturday April 26. Thousands of people under the Cowboy and Indian Alliance banner marched, camped and spoke to urge President Barack Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
They came on horseback from the Dakotas, and from as far away as the Alberta oil sands in Canada, where Indigenous Peoples bear the brunt of the industrial practices that extract the viscous, tarry bitumen that saturates the region.
Here are 10 iconic images from the last day—the march and closing ceremonies.
