The Ground Shots Podcast

Mar 28, 2021

In this episode of the podcast, Gabe Crawford, a former podcast guest, catches up with Dan Nanamkin, who was featured previously on Episode #39 of the Podcast.



Dan Nanamkin is from the Chief Joseph Band Of Wallowa, Nez Perce, and Colville Confederated Tribes of Washington State has been an advocate/teacher for indigenous culture, community unity, youth empowerment, racial equality, and peace for several decades. Prior to Standing Rock, Dan took one of the leads in helping to restore ancient canoe culture of the northwest plateau tribes, the River Warriors. This inspired him further to connect with the Water, something that led him to Standing Rock. He endured months of peaceful front line action at Standing Rock from September 2016 until March 2017. Dan has since traveled across the nation speaking with his two dogs and band, the One Tribe Movement. ​ Dan advocates for people to be better informed, to get more involved, to resist racism and violence, and to support the movement to protect Mother Earth. He is a public presenter, musician and author who remains active in bringing forth awareness of Native culture. His mission is to connect modern day people with the traditions that are still absolutely relevant and critical to life today. Dan hopes to bring back traditional knowledge of the earth/plants/medicines and survival in a way to encourage healing, wellness and respect for balance with Mother Earth and all living things.



In this conversation with Dan and Gabe, they talk about:



  • update on Sovereignty Camps and the name change to Young Warrior Society


  • organic food access on the reservation


  • how Dan’s community stepped up during Covid to support one another


  • some #landback talk from Dan’s perspective


  • the difficulty of being able to tend and harvest native first foods with how land is now split up in modern times due to colonization, racism, access issues


  • some updates on Dan’s land projects
