Tokata Iron Eyes

TOKATA IRON EYES

Growing up “Indigenous” in the United States, 18yr old activist Tokata (future) iron eyes is keenly aware of the inherent sacredness of the earth, and the immense pain that it has incurred over a long history of capitalist and colonial violence. a member of the standing rock Sioux tribe, Tokata has been involved in protests since she was just 9 years old, beginning with the indiginous fight to stop the building of a uranium mine in the sacred black hills in South Dakota. She has since become a powerful voice advocating for the climate justice movement and the indiginous search for liberation— fighting the Dakota access pipeline at standing rock and raising awareness about the disproportionate violence endured by indiginous women across the us.

On may 19, she was honored by gloria steinem as one of the ms. foundation’s 2020 women of vision.
