Standing Rock has featured a lot in the news and on this blog.
Last month Māori All Black Kane Hames made a political statement during their games against USA.
It was a simple act but sent a message around the world.
Hames was unable to wear the political statement in his next game against Ireland.
It’s not the first time All Blacks have been stopped from making political statements.
Despite being stopped from continuing with the protest the beauty of the internet is that the image from that one game has gone global and had a wide reach.
