Special thanks to everyone who dashed into battle for protection of the water, the Missouri River and Cannon Ball River, as the Dakota Access Pipeline, its hired mercenaries, and the militarized police led by Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, violated laws, civil rights and human rights to protect a private pipeline now threatening the water source of millions.
Thank you to the cooks, photographers, videographers, medics, healers, attorneys, wood choppers, drivers, horseback riders; those who cleaned; those who sang; those who reported; those who shared; those who cared; those who prayed; those who gave generously; and those who asked for nothing in return.
You are our heroes.
