A totem pole was designed to represent the solidarity between Indigenous nations opposed to the creation of crude oil pipelines in North America.

On its two-week journey from its original home in Washington State the pole made its way through British Columbia, Idaho, Montana and the Dakotas where thousands are still camped out at a massive pipeline protest.
