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.

Oceti Sakowin Camp

Our seasons and joy unbound by time
Meadowlarks looking past the sunset
with songs full of happiness
My mind wondering if I’ve heard the night songs before
Their voices familiar
they are our relatives
reminding us of lost memories
Telling stories from long ago
Speaking in Lakota as they have for generations

WATER PROTECTOR LEGAL COLLECTIVE 

Great result in Morton County Court today as Olive Bias was acquitted after trial on a Criminal Trespass charge stemming from their visit to Turtle Hill, a site regarded as sacred to Native people. All of the state's witnesses acknowledged that Turtle Hill is a sacred site. A second charge of Engaging in a Riot was dismissed before trial.

Olive was represented by WPLC Staff Attorney Moira Meltzer-Cohen, who argued that access to that site should be considered protected by the First Amendment, the North Dakota State Constitution, and the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.

Judge Grinsteiner ruled after the close of the state's case that they had failed to meet their burden of proof that trespass notice had been communicated to Olive.

“Nonviolent direct action is like when I offer my flesh for Sundance. Prayer must be proactive to not be mere sentiment. Sacred sites and ceremony were outlawed for hundreds of years, and still today Natives are punished for accessing our traditional knowledge and sites. Many arrests that occurred in camp were of Native people involved in ceremony, including mine,” Olive said after court today.
