Good words from locked-down warriors who are standing up for our rights. Video taken on Highway North 94 between exit 117 and 123 alongside the DAPL easement. One native male is locked down to bulldozer talking about rights & how the pipeline violates treaties. He is “praying with his ancestors”. The camera man walks around showing a black (security?) truck, and one additional native male and also a female locked down to other bulldozers. Everything appears peaceful.
