Oglala Sioux Tribe joins fight against pipeline
CANNONBALL, ND – On Monday, August 15, a herd of horses was used to disburse the line of police officers that guarded the entrance to the construction site used to build the Dakota Access Pipeline.
With the way cleared, a group of 12 defenders from the Sacred Stone Spiritual Camp replaced the police officers at the entrance of the construction site. They were arrested, handcuffed and taken away.
“This is about water and land,” said Juliana Brown Eyes-Clifford who along with her husband Scotti Clifford, both from the band Scatter Their Own, were arrested. "We have to take a stand to protect the water and land for generations to come.”
