Transcanada leave Lakota Territory!

by November 17, 2013

On November 13, 2013, tribal members of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, acting as agents for Transcanada in order to sell-out the homeland to the Keystone XL Pipeline, brought Keystone representatives to the reservation. Here’s what happened:

"You’re already compromised, we know your names, we’ve seen you, what you did here tonight, selling us out for money, that’s shameful... Corporations work this way to divide communities, to divide neighborhoods... The rest of us are going to be strong together for Unci Maka" -- Debra White Plume, to the sellouts and the representatives of the deadly Keystone XL Pipeline.

"If you are going to be amongst us and be one of us don’t ever, ever bring these guys amongst us!" -- Tatanka Agli Win, to the sellouts who brought Keystone reps to Cheyenne River.

As seen in this video clip from the Lakota Media Project, the powerful Lakota Winyan ensured that the Transcanadians quickly left Lakota Territory by literally escorting them out the door and into their cars.

"Run home and tell your corporate headquarters in Canada that the Lakota are going to make a stand. Tell them, you’re going to have to run over them or throw them in jail. That’s the message you have to take home... So I think you need to leave our land! We’re ready to go to jail to get you out of here NOW, so you can leave on your own or be escorted out now..."-- Debra White Plume, Owe Aku.

    The White Plumes and MikMaq along with many
    Red Nations are real heros and activists
    of the year and far beyond. They will receive
    their dreams in this lifetime.
    Turtle Island would be nothing without all of you and our International Indigenous brothers and sisters and families. And your Time is here and coming. Never compromise, and Turtle Island is returning.
