Typefaces for Native American Activism
The type and posters were created to commemorate the Native communities standing together to help the Sioux Standing Rock Tribe and their fight to get rid of the Dakota Access Pipeline. These pipelines cause so many detrimental problems for this community, water being poisoned with oil and their land being upturned by pipes and ruining sacred grounds. The typefaces show the different types of important resources regarding Native American activism. The soil we walk on, and come in contact with everyday. Indigenous communities are losing the ground beneath them, the land they once had, lost, regained and are losing once again. Prime water sources being poisoned with oil, voices of protests being drowned, religion being erased. Seen as expendable, the typefaces and posters give tribute to Native resources that we are constantly fighting for.
