Red Fawn:

Cause Campaign:

A powerful body of work came out of the M.A.S.H tent at Standing Rock and one of those projects was the Free Red Fawn campaign. Red Fawn is someone that we strongly believe was wrongly convicted and is a political prisoner of the Standing Rock movement.  In a 36×16 military tent, our team worked together to create this video. It was our hope to educate others about Red Fawn’s plight and to raise resources for her legal defense. Since it’s launch, the campaign has raised over $ 150,000 dollars. It is our hope to continue to support the legal fund and to raise an additional 100k for Red Fawn’s legal fund before the fall of 2017.


“On Oct. 27th, the police raided the 1851 Treaty Camp. Grandmothers and grandfathers and youth were pulled out of sacred sweat lodges, old and precious teepees were destroyed, along with holy ceremonial items such as the chanupa, our sacred ceremonial pipe. More than 140 people were arrested that day. Bail was raised from $200 to $1,500 for each. All have been released except, Red Fawn. Her bail was originally set for $110k. That day, Red Fawn was serving as a trained medic. She was helping injured water protectors who had been sprayed with mace and hit by rubber bullets. As Red Fawn retreated from the front lines, three officers targeted, tackled and threw her to the ground. Police reports allege that one of the officers pulled his weapon and placed it against her back and while she was pinned to the ground, shots were fired.

Red Fawn is being accused of firing a weapon. Eyewitness accounts and video show otherwise.

Red Fawn is still being held in Federal prison.  To find out more visit:  CLICK HERE
