I'll be back with another #WomanOfTheDay tomorrow.
#WomanOfTheDay 7/17/2019: Phyllis Young.

Young is a Lakota activist, founder of Women of All Red Nations & a key elder in the #NoDAPL movement. From @nick_w_estes’s new book, I also learned she was instrumental in drafting the 1974 “Declaration of Continuing Independence.” Book cover: Our History Is The Future
Phyllis Young: “I am ‘Woman Who Stands By The Water’ & my other name is ‘Woman Who Loves the Water.’ I was given those names by my people because it's been my life struggle to protect the water.”
