He joined the many water protectors from a plethora of backgrounds to object the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline intrudes on Sioux land settled in The 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie–which was eventually taken away. construction was orignially planned to run through the city of Bismarck, but was turned down after due to the community’s concern about its water supply. The pipeline was then re-routed to run underneath Standing Rock Sioux sacred tribal sites and The Missouri River–the tribe’s source of drinking water.

Mensa documented his time there via video and shared photos on Instagram to promote the unification of Americans to join in on the fight for justice and clean water.

The Chi-Town rapper also states he will return to the site on December 4th, along with the two thousand American veterans intent on protesting the State Governor’s evacuation order. Vic Mensa has become one of the many growing celebrities and talent to lend his voice to the cause of water protection. Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, Mark Ruffalo and Jason Momoa have also been physical and vocal activists to raise awareness.
