ABOUT THE GRANT
- $45,000 to The Yes Lab to support The Peace Pipeline (MAP 2019)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Oil companies routinely build pipelines through Indigenous lands, often destroying sacred sites. How do non-natives feel when the shoe is on the other foot? In this gonzo reality hack, Gitz Crazyboy and Tito Ybarra act as the Indigenous Pipeline Council, a Native-owned pipeline company that has been “granted the right” to run their pipeline through residential Duluth, MN. Watch the tragically real comedy unfold as Minnesota residents learn what is going to happen to their own sacred sites: a golf course, the downtown shopping district, and even a graveyard.
This project was created in solidarity with the Stop Line 3 campaign.
