This is how our Sacred items and personal belongings were returned in garbage trucks dumped on the side of the road…how can a people like them exist? This is how the Indigenous Peoples of Mother Earth are treated in the United States in 2016 – SHAME ON YOU USA!
This was yesterday:
Today after morning water ceremony, peaceful protestors made their way over a makeshift bridge to Turtle Mountain, a sacred burial hill located just NorthEast of camp to pray to their ancestors. They were met with more violence and assault by local law enforcement officers. The land they were heading to was Army Corp land which the police do not have jurisdiction, and the water is neutral territory. Everything about the police actions today shows nothing but corruption, and treason against the US government, and the treaty rights they have signed, and sworn to uphold.
Welcome to America. The American dream is a police state.
Turtle Island will rise. -Redhawk

Today many of our protectors tried to cross the river to pray on top of a hill where Oceti Sakowin ancestors are buried, this place has been desecrated by the police and DAPL. The militarized police responded with brutal force, a young man was shot point blank with a rubber bullet and has been coughing up blood, another woman was shot by one of heavily armed officers on a boat. Many of our people tried crossing the river after police destroyed our makeshift bridge, some of them are in critical condition after they were gassed and maced by police and went into shock from the freezing cold waters. Other brave people kept going back by boat to rescue those that were struggling in the cold water but police in their own boat attempted to stop them. These are WAR CRIMES, we are unarmed we are peaceful, no one even lifted a finger against these cops today. I am disgusted by the state of North Dakota and by this country that continues to perpetuate its genocide against Indigenous Peoples’. #NoDAPL #CrimesAgainstHumanity #WaterIsLife #MiniWiconi #IndigenousRising
Native Lives MatterSTANDING ROCK MATTERS!
This is how America deals with Peaceful Women standing in the cold water sacrificing themselves to protect the water despite the insane spraying of pepper spray by the police on the north edge of camp. #NoDAPL

Churches today removing their curse off the Tribes, that they put on them from 500 years ago! History is being made once again. The indigenous nations were the ones shown how to care for the Earth! They have that wisdom gifted to them but no one listened until now. Water is a gift of life to all living!
