Just to say my support to the Sacred Stones Camp protesters against The PipeHoline Constuction. I think Tatanka Iyotanka, the Lakota Patriot would be proud as Tecumseh, the Shawnee Chief who tried to united the native american Nations. I knew the protest because, French News have just talked about it and I saw the video of the arrivals of some Nations at the camp.
Following years of resistance, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Indigenous organizers across the country scored a massive legal victory Monday when a federal judge ordered the Dakota Access Pipeline to be shut down and emptied of all oil, pending an environmental review. “You ever have a dream, a dream that comes true? That is what it is,” responds LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, an elder of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and founder of Sacred Stone Camp, where resistance in 2016 brought tens of thousands of people to oppose the pipeline’s construction on sacred lands. We also speak with Ojibwe lawyer Tara Houska, founder of the Giniw Collective.
