From the NAMA org:
As we near the 16th Annual Native American Music Awards ceremony, we keep the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s actions to protect their land, water and sacred sites from the Dakota Acess Pipeline, in our prayers and hearts. The pipeline is planned to transport approximately 470,000 barrels of crude oil per day. The potential of oil leaks would contaminate the only source of water for the reservation and worse. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has received an outpouring of support with over a hundred Tribes, First Nations, Organizations, Cities, and Businesses who have visited and sent them signed resolutions and letters of support. NAMA Nominees such as Joseph FireCrow, Lil Mike & Funny Bone, Thana Redhawk, Spirit Cry, Darren Thompson, Blue Mountain Tribe as well as mainstream artist, Pharrell Williams, Divergent star Shailene Woodley, Actors Jason Momoa and Leonardo DiCaprio all have expressed their support. The Native American Music Awards Stands With Standing Rock especially as they begin what may be the start of a lengthy, legal fight over the Dakota Access Pipeline. Meanwhile, construction work on the pipeline is still ongoing.
