Red Fawn is a human rights advocate, organizer, and a community leader within the Oglala Lakota Sioux. She was raised in traditional Lakota ways, grounded with love and deep connection to the earth and all living things. Her mother, Troylynn Yellow Wood, taught her the importance of fighting for social and environmental justice.
She has been imprisoned since Oct. 27th 2016 after Morton County Sheriff Department accused her of firing a weapon during a militarized police raid of the Standing Rock Prayer and Resistance Camps, although eyewitnesses saw, and firmly say, otherwise. On that day, Red Fawn was helping those who had been injured, as a frontline medic.
Red Fawn is a symbol of Indigenous Resistance, and she is being wrongfully imprisoned–she needs our support! We are fundraising to help with the cost of her legal team.
