It’s Not Over!

Recently leaked documents reveal that TigerSwan, a private security firm hired by DAPL parent company Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), operated without a license in North Dakota. TigerSwan also employed unlawful, paramilitary style tactics to suppress the movement by targeting, surveilling, and provoking the peaceful and prayerful water protectors at Standing Rock.

Use this form on the Lakota People’s Law Project site to ask North Dakota’s Attorney General and Morton County’s State’s Attorney to drop the charges against water protectors and hold TigerSwan and ETP accountable by making them pay for the state’s costs resulting from law enforcement actions at Standing Rock.

HONOR THE EARTH

Follow Indian Horse ... new film

From Katie Gillis the mother of youngest actor that played Saul #IndianHorse, child actor, Sladen Peltier, and the scene that was filmed of Saul getting his hair cut off in Residential School one year ago:
“Many have asked why not a wig - and I say this - the emotion you see during the scene in the movie is REAL!
One year ago today Sladen made a major sacrifice so that others can learn. He cut his hair, on camera for the movie Indian Horse. We started our day with a ceremony - where the majority of the cast and crew came to support Sladen - and I will say our family as well. We had made tobacco ties and gave them to all that were in attendance and beautiful words were spoken and helped give us all strength.

And this portion of the story is huge - one that may take 30 seconds on screen, but hurt thousands in real life. It is what happened at Indian Residential School(s) - one of the first steps to make Indian kids ‘white’. It is with hopes that this lesson and portion of the film will make it to broader audiences for educational purposes.

Only a tiny portion of his hair was cut. We had one last family hug and some tears - and [the hair cutting scene] started again - this time it was short - but still painful to watch. You see the pain that we were feeling wasn’t limited to our family, and I know those there also felt it. As Stephen Campanelli says now, he thought if he didn’t yell for the scene to cut, I would’ve. And I most likely would’ve.

Lastly, those tobacco ties that were given out? We mentioned to cast and crew, that they could carry them for the day, or the entire rest of filming. It was up to them. And then asked them to release the tobacco with good thoughts back to the earth. On the very last day of filming, many of the crew came up to me and showed me that they carried it with them every day. Made my heart fill up. To all of our movie family. We love you.
A year later, Sladen is doing amazing - he is still going with short hair but says he will grow it out again. The time isn’t right, right now. Much love to all who also sent support on this day.”
