Keystone XL 'We Are Ready!'
In a second interview with Spirit Resistance Radio a Water Protector at Wakpa Waste Powwow grounds at Eagle Butte, South Dakota, shares the struggle as it continues. The focus now is to fight the Keystone XL Pipeline. He describes how divestment is successful in halting pipelines.
"We do our best to stay in prayer."
Speaking of the respect necessary to be present in camp, and on the land, he says, "This is Lakota country."
