For Immediate Release: November 20, 2017

Wakpa Waste Camp is deeply concerned with the decision made by the Nebraska Public Service Commission approving the Keystone XL pipeline through an alternative route through Nebraska. It doesn’t change the fact that this black snake if constructed would go through our traditional homelands of the Lakota Dakota and Nakota people as well as the Ponca, Winnebago, Omaha tribes. Free prior informed consent was not obtained from the tribes. It would cross countless historical, Sacred sites, burial grounds and threatened the drinking water to millions of Americans and the Ogallala aquifer that feeds the bread basket of so called America.

We stand ready to defend our homelands. We work with our tribe, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, and will follow their lead in any call to action, prayer and resistance.

On this day the anniversary of backwater bridge where many of us stood to protect our homelands last year against Dakota Access pipeline we find it ironic that they would make this announcement today.

Our people, especially our women and children must be protected from the evil man camps that these oil companies bring with them. We know the dangers they possess for our most vulnerable.

We are asking for 24 hours of prayer first as we do all things in prayer first. Then watch for updates. We stand.
