The Rev. John Floberg with a wind-battered Episcopal Church flag at Standing Rock Indian Reservation Monday, the day after the U.S. Government refused to issue easements needed to complete a large oil pipeline a mile from the reservation. Fr. Floberg, the supervising priest in the North Dakota portion of the reservation where 7 months of anti-pipline demonstrations have taken place, is also a member of TEC’s national Executive Council, and has become the voice of the Church during the pipeline controversy. He is one of many responsible for a tremendous victory by indigenous peoples the world over who united to back Standing Rock’s cause. (The Rev. Lauren R. Stanley)
