Amanda’s work has been published in Rolling Stone, ELLE Japan and Vanity Fair France, covering topics like civil and environmental rights at the Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance Camp, First Nation musicians on the quest for Truth and Reconciliation, and the Women’s March on Washington in Portland.
