"Vanessa Dundon, also known as “Sioux Z,” was helping a fellow female protester when she was struck in the face with a tear gas canister. She told Salon the police targeted her intentionally.
The attack occurred on Blackwater Bridge in Standing Rock, where police were using riot control agents including mace, rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons.
Directly after the incident, she was asked to have her picture taken. Dundon was hesitant, but soon realized how important the exposure may be to raise awareness of police brutality.
“I didn’t want the world to see me like this, I didn’t want my kids to see me like this, I didn’t want myself to see me like this,” Dundon explained. “But, I knew how important it was for the world to see this.”*
