Cannon Ball, North Dakota --
Anthony Waters, of the Oglala Sioux of Pine Ridge in South Dakota, arrived at the Oceti Sakowin Camp the night before and slept in his car. Waters is a veteran, having served with the 82nd Airborne. "When you get a call up, as warriors, we naturally go anyway. We drop whatever, we leave our families at home and come up to help everybody else up. With the news yesterday, that's a big relief, but that didn't stop them. They're still drilling," Waters said
With the North Dakota winter setting in, protestors at the Oceti Sakowin Camp have dug in as the Dakota Access pipeline, which they have been protesting since early 2016, nears completion at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball Rivers.
