Ellen Van Daele's curator insight, March 22, 2015 4:51 PM

This map show the immigration and emigration of people in the United States. It gives you a visual representation of all the people moving in and out of an area. 

 

Something I noticed by looking at the map was that there are a huge amount of people leaving and moving in the major cities. Initially I thought that there would be a larger income than outcome in the big cities but the flow seemed pretty stable.

Nadya Raja Tannous drove from the Bay Area to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation near Bismarck, North Dakota to join hundreds of representatives of Indigenous Nations around the world who have come to support the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline: I had spent most of the hours on the road to North Dakota contemplating the connections between the obstacles and oppressions facing those in Standing Rock and the obstacles and oppressions facing we Palestinians under occupation and apartheid.
