Ironically November is "American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month". Early in the month a racist was appointed president who has as much as $1 Million investment in the Dakota Access Pipeline which is being being forced on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota. The danger of the pipeline crossing under the only water source for the tribe is of great concern when it breaks and leaks not to mention the destruction of burial grounds and sacred sites. If it wasn't an indian burial ground it would be off limits to digging a pipeline.

Chanting, singing and praying indigenous and their supporters numbering in the thousands have been met with police and national guard violence acting as corporate enforcers. Recent violence led to over 300 injuries with one lady having her arm nearly blown off from a concussion grenade shot by police that exploded as it hit her arm. Water hoses were also deployed in 25 to 28 degree weather.

Next, if President Obama doesn't act the Army Corp of Engineers will attempt to evict the Water Protectors camp on December 5th or shortly after that deadline.

In 1863 the army was sent against a Sioux tribal camp in this very same area resulting the massacre of over 300. It was later determined that it was the wrong tribe but the damage had already been done.

If there be any truth to the white-man fable of thanksgiving it is that the natives could not just standby and let a group of fellow humans starve to death and helped them out with food and, well, the rest is the history of payback for a good dead never going unpunished.

North Dakota has identified 1 of the nine quakes over a recent 3 year period to franking waist injection wells new and unidentified faults may be awakened as waist injection increases as it has done in Oklahoma with their 4000% increase in quakes, many on fault lines previously unknown. Residents of 2 of the hardest hit areas are now suing the oil and gas companies. Those so far it's relatively stable in North Dakota but it only takes 1 earthquake to break the pipeline under the river.

Our own area historically has serious water pollution issues that are ongoing to this day, perhaps as more people awaken to Protecting the Water more interest and action can begin here.
