Statement of Elle-Maija Tailfeathers of her arrest with Lois Frank and Jill Crop Eared Wolf:
After being told by the law enforcement officers present that the Blood Tribe Chief and Council refused to meet with us, we were given no other option but to stand our ground and refuse that any of the Murphy Oil vehicles carrying these harmful chemicals be allowed to leave the well site and enter tribal land. At this point, Lois Frank, Jill Crop Eared Wolf, and myself were all arrested and handcuffed by the Blood Tribe Police while R.C.M.P. officers stood by. Just after 9 PM, we were all placed in a Blood Tribe holding cell and held without charge for approximately four hours. After we were charged with violating Section 423 (1)(G) of the criminal code for “intimidation”, we were not released until 7 AM the next morning. One of the conditions of our release is that we do not attend any gas or oil site on the Blood Reserve.
