CANNON BALL, North Dakota -- BIA Police have taken control of Sacred Stone Camp, and the new camp Seventh Generation Camp, as of today, March 1, 2017.
LaDonna Allard, owner of the land where Sacred Stone Camp is located, was halted, and denied entry to Sacred Stone Camp today at noon.
Police told Allard they are enforcing a hard barricade, and preventing entry to Sacred Stone Camp, the original camp of the water protectors created in the spring of 2016.
Police told Allard that all of the water protectors belongings and property would be seized.
At 2 pm, Johnny Dangers reported BIA police were now inside Sacred Stone Camp. The last group to leave camp today said there was one arrest.
Cheyenne River Chairman Harold Frazier, and the Cheyenne River Lakota, have created a refuge for those fleeing from the police invasion of the camps at Standing Rock, in Eagle Butte, South Dakota.
Many water protectors at the big camp, Oceti Sakowin, lost everything, holding out hope until the end that there would be no eviction.
Joye Braun, Cheyenne River Lakota, and among the first at Sacred Stone Camp in the spring of 2016, welcomed everyone today.
"Welcome home," Braun said. Watch her video just posted:
LaDonna said today that this is not the end. The Sacred Fire still burns and was taken to the Sacred Mountain in Hawaii.
Below is the resolution by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe requesting all law enforcement agencies to remove the water protectors in the camps.
This resolution of removal and displacement for water protectors comes after the tribe "reallocated" $3.2 million donated by supporters for the water protector camps. The tribe reallocated the $3.2 million for the tribe's own use.
