Legendary musician and noted environmental activist Neil Young spent his 71st birthday on Saturday joining the Standing Rock Reservation protest. Young brought along an acoustic guitar and harmonica and performed for the people opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Earlier this year Young released the song “Indian Giver” with a video featuring footage from the protests. The song is on Young’s upcoming new album Peace Trail which comes out on December 2.
Young posted on his Facebook page a video from the Standing Rock Reservation protest with the following note:
