January 15, 2020

Tara Houska, pictured here protesting the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline in 2018, said a TSA agent at MSP Airport pulled on her braids and "whipped them like reins."

An official of the Transportation Security Administration apologized Tuesday to a Native American air traveler who says an agent treated her offensively at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Tara Houska has had past trouble with her braids setting off alarms as she passed through airport body scanners, but she said she has never experienced anything like what happened Monday.
