(published 9/5/16): Horses riding behind retreating trucks – Photo by Dell Hambleton, with posted quote: “After the events that took place at the construction site, I heard a young boy, no older than 7 years old, riding in the back of a pickup truck heading towards camp. His face lit up as he saw a young man riding a horse, face masked with a bandana, he said “You look like a Warrior”.
It made me wonder, what does a Warrior look like? Does a Warrior look like the images painted on our TV screens? Does a Warrior need to be painted up ready for war? Does a Warrior need to be holding a weapon? No.. At that very moment I realized, a Warrior is what that young boy was looking at. A Warrior is the young man that he saw riding his horse, protecting his land. A Warrior is the men and women that are ready and willing to drive away those that are desecrating their sacred sites. A Warrior is what that boy saw when his face lit up and said “You look like a Warrior”.
#NoDAPL for the love of the culture.”

Red Warrior Camp overview of the actions of DAPL on 9/3/2016 including an interview with Dale “Happi” American Horse, Jr.: This video first shows a confrontation between water protectors and private guards who are armed with dogs. The protectors chant various phrases as they peacefully assemble, such as “water is life,” and “don’t come back.” The guards deploy mace, and one protector is shown having her eyes rinsed. The video then shows a meeting among the protectors. Finally, one protector explains why resisting the pipeline is a priority for him.
