Face to Face with Joye Braun, one of the original #NoDAPL inhabitants of the Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota

Face to Face
She was one of only a handful of people to first set up camp near Standing Rock.

And Joye Braun never imagined it would grow into a world wide movement.

Braun is a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and the Indigenous Environmental Network.

Over the past year, she’s become one of the most recognizable faces of the grassroots fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.

And she tells F2F Host Dennis Ward that this is not her first time taking on big oil and she hopes to come out on top once again.
