While the world celebrated the rise of South Africa's Rainbow Nation, a small group of white Afrikaners went into retreat. They settled in an abandoned stretch of desert in the Northern Cape and began building a community that would preserve the values of a divided South Africa.

    “Hope Inside the Fire” is a testament to the power of the Natives Americans’ peaceful prayer during the DAPL protests, that was not covered by other outlets.
