Dave Matthews, Graham Nash Perform Powerful Stand With Standing Rock Concert
By Rolling Stone Magazine
On Sunday night, while Standing Rock Sioux Tribe water protectors stood their ground in North Dakota to oppose the Dakota Access pipeline, a group of rock stars were gathering in Washington, D.C. to raise funds to help their resistance effort continue. Headliner and host Dave Matthews organized the "Stand With Standing Rock" event at DAR Constitution Hall, just a couple blocks from the White House. In addition to the evening's famous performers, Matthews invited many members of tribe to perform and speak, including 23-year-old Kendrick Eagle, who shared his experiences meeting President Obama on a few occasions. "He told us he had our backs as long as he's in office. And now we need him more than ever, and that's why I'm here."
