As part of a Communication, Media, and Rhetoric (CMR) media activist project we are partnering with #NoDAPL by creating a media portfolio. This media project emcompasses the history of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and personal stories generated from the protests. During this project we have created a series of six videos, a collaborative public event, and a social media page. The goal is to work towards creating a statement piece that share accurate information on DAPL and its connection to the University of Minnesota Morris (UMM) in hope of promoting positive action within and beyond the Morris community. Through the process of research on the history and current news of DAPL, shooting video, interviewing, post production, creation of a social media campaign, and visiting the aftermath campsites of DAPL post eviction, we created several multimedia persuasive messages. The videos contain personal stories and interviews on the DAPL subject as well as ideas to encourage activism. In our presentation, we will introduce these videos and discuss our creation process as well as our learned experience. This project will address the connection of the history of UMM with tribal policies involving the U.S. government, the Indian Removal Act of 1830, DAPL, and the personal stories of DAPL protesters. Our hope is to create a political artistic piece that motivates others towards positive action concerning DAPL.
