In his address “Standing with Tribes - Past, Present & Future,” Dave Archambault discusses how the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s stand against the oil industry and Federal government to block construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline just upstream of their lands quickly came to represent the arduous struggle of indigenous peoples everywhere to protect their sovereignty and ancestral heritage. Archambault will reflect on his Tribe's rich history and how honoring the past has powered efforts to preserve that heritage for future generations. He shares his experiences with the "Standing with Standing Rock" movement, the leadership decisions he's had to make in the moment, strategies he's learned for successfully carrying the fight forward, as well as steps for all of Indian Country to stand together against injustice.
Biography: David Archambault II (Lakota Name: Tokala Ohitika ‘Brave Fox’) is former tribal Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota. He attended Standing Rock Community College (now Sitting Bull College), Bismarck State College, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from North Dakota State University as well as a Master’s degree in Management from the University of Mary. In 2014, Archambault hosted the historic visit of President Barack Obama and the First Lady Michelle to the Standing Rock Reservation. During that visit, he accompanied the President and First Lady in a meeting with Standing Rock youth, who spoke about the challenges they face growing up on the reservation and their aspirations for the future. In his past role as Chairman, Archambault was appointed to the US Sentencing Commission’s Tribal Issues Advisory Group, the Department of Justice’s Tribal Nations Leadership Council, and the US Department of Labor, Native American Employment and Training Council. In 2016, Archambault emerged as a global leader for Indigenous Peoples’ rights as he led the opposition to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Archambault was named a “Leading Global Thinker of 2016” by Foreign Policy Magazine, was given the "Native American Leadership Award" by the National Congress of American Indians, received a "Doctorate of Law Honoris Causa" from the Vermont Law School and published editorials in The New York Times. Archambault continues to be a voice for tribal sovereignty as he works with University of Colorado’s First Peoples Engagement Investment Project.
