Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Jane Fonda, and Bruce Kapson in a panel discussion moderated by Jon Christensen in the first public conversation in Los Angeles about the Dakota Access Pipeline on December 15, 2016 at the DEPART Foundation LA.

The conversation addressed how the situation in the High Plains along the Missouri River in North Dakota is of historic, ecological, and environmental consequence not only to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Native Americans but to all Americans.

The discussion panel took place against the backdrop of the DEPART Foundation's exhibition "Rediscovering Genius: The Works of Edward S. Curtis" curated by Bruce Kapson, the premier institutional presentation of the masterwork Copper Photogravure Printing Plates of Curtis's The North American Indian.

Although separated by 118 years, the Native American issues of concern to Edward S. Curtis and those of the protestors of the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock remain the same.
