We interviewed Joye Braun for a recent @NBCInvestigates story about a proposed new carbon capture pipeline in the Midwest. Joye was a force and extraordinarily committed to her cause and community. Thinking of her family today. @GMorgenson @NBCNewsNow https://t.co/3hSnozgVOA

Kandi White, the program director for Indigenous Environmental Network, stated in a press release that Braun was the kind of person who would “give her last meal or pair of moccasins to those in need.”
“Her advice and counsel were sought by many, she could always be counted on to speak the truth and she pulled no punches. For this, and so much more, she was respected by colleagues and adversaries alike,”
Who was Joye Braun?
Braun reportedly worked for the Indigenous Environmental Network as a national pipeline organizer.
She also represented the group in People vs. Fossil Fuels, an alliance of more than 1,200 organizations urging the federal government to declare a climate emergency.
Braun’s teepee was the first to be erected during the Dakota Access protest at Standing Rock. It later became the Oceti Sakowin camp.
One of Braun’s fondest moments, according to her daughter Morgan Brings Plenty, was seeing the Keystone XL pipeline stopped.
After President Joe Biden revoked the pipeline’s permit to cross the border into Nebraska last year. The 1,200-mile (1,930-kilometer) pipeline that was supposed to transport crude oil from western Canada to Steel City, Nebraska, was scrapped.
