STANDING ROCK – Fed up with the gross misinformation being distributed by North Dakota law enforcement and the local media in North Dakota, eight American Indians respond with strong voices in a YouTube video.
The producers of the video would like to tell the water protectors: “We would like to thank the Standing Rock Water Protectors. You are making history and are making our ancestors proud.”
