Video #5

Footage of an African American woman being arrested, & released again. More arrests in the distance.

    1st arrest, possibly a case of mistaken identity, as another African American woman was more likely the one they wanted to arrest. Many more people being arrested, handcuffed / zip tied, sat down on the grass, then later led away.

Still photo #1

Photo of smouldering fire in field west of Cannonball

    “2 hours ago a flash fire broke loose in a corn field just west of Cannonball. Oceti Sakowin Camp media were first to arrive on the scene to start trying to contain the fire. Within minutes the fire had spread hundreds of feet, and more protectors started to arrive to help. Upon investigation, we saw that the fire was deliberately started by a ball shaped item that was set on fire, and thrown into the brush near the field. With winds coming from the south, the fire was heading directly towards Rosebud/Sacred Stone. We tried our best to help contain the fire until local BIA and FD units arrived. Very scary moment for sure. Here is an image I captured of the turmoil.”
