The story which this poncho is hiding is the classic tale of NGO's exploiting a weaker minority for its natural resources and the countermovement arising from that.

The situation of the Native American people within the USA is a prime example of such. Not only because of their history of sociopolitical oppression but also because of its actuality with the most recent riots around the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The poncho displays a map of all power-plants, coal and uranium mines within the Navajo Nation. Worn inside out it becomes potential protest sign against the Dakota Access Pipeline or a bootlegged Raf Simons coat.
