RENO, Nevada -- Native Americans from Nevada and California rallied in Reno today, sending support to Standing Rock Lakotas who are fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline which threatens to poison their water supply, the Missouri River, with an underground crude oil pipeline.
Buck Sampson, Paiute, said, "We Natives are having big rally in Reno in support of our Tribesmen Standing Rock Sioux."
"We have some people from Standing Rock talking, the drum, Las Vegas Paiutes from Moapa, Pyramid Lake Tribe, Yerington Tribe, Schurz Tribe, Reno Sparks Tribe, Lovelock Tribe, Fallon Tribe, Northern Paiute Tribes in Nevada, Susanville Tribe Paiute, Washoe, Maidu and Pit River."
"We got a few Lakotas here, 300 Natives."
"There were Shoshones from Duckwater, Duck Valley, and Shoshone Paiutes from northern Nevada."
"They did round dance and sang songs, lots of traditional songs. There was a TV crew here. Now they're singing the AIM song," Buck Sampson told Censored News late on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016.
