Indigenous protesters form a blockade of vans on the highway leading to Mount Rushmore on Friday, July 3, 2020 in Keystone, SD. President Trump held a Fourth of July celebration at the monument. Protesters cited that the Black Hills are sacred to Native Americans and that Trump's administration opposes interests of Native Americans and other minority groups. Freddie Longworth, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe, said that the problem is bigger than the current president, but that Trump was the catalyst. "Respect our right to exist or expect our resistance," he said. "We are orphans crying in the night and we will keep making noise until they hear us."
