The People

Set in a dystopia 71 years into the future, Native lands and rights are gone. Left in waste, Reservations become encampments and are heavily guarded by private military security. Poverty and oppression lay ruin to every Native tribal nation within the former U.S. The cause: an insurgency led by an indigenous human rights group called, The People, against the forced construction of a massive oil pipeline through Native territory in the year 2051. This insurgency was the beginning to the Second American Civil War and an end to the democracy. Eight years of fighting, a new system is born: Oppress the insurgent, contain the problem, use fear to foster obedience.

This is the world Itancan is born into and he will do anything to escape it.
