Chairman of Standing Rock Sioux Tribe | United States of America

Chairman Archambault emerged as a global leader for Indigenous Peoples’ rights last year as he led the opposition to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

He continues to be a voice for tribal sovereignty in championing protection of tribal treaty lands and natural resources. Archambault testified before the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, led the Washington, D.C. “Native Nations Rise” march, and published two editorials in The New York Times.

Chairman Archambault was recently named a “Leading Global Thinker of 2016” by Foreign Policy Magazine, was the winner of the River Network's "2017 James R. Compton River Achievement Award," honored at the 14th Annual Global Green Pre-Oscar Party as a "Global Green Champion," selected as a joint recipient of ACLU's Roger N. Baldwin Metal of Liberty, awarded the "Native American Leadership Award" by the National Congress of American Indians and received a "Doctorate of Law Honoris Causa" from the Vermont Law School.
