FORT PECK: Kokipasni 'No Fear' Ceremony and Protest in Opposition to Keystone XL Pipeline

.


Fort Peck has been one of the many tribal nations of Oceti Sakowin that has spoken out against TC Energy’s Keystone XL pipeline for over a decade.
Our voices have been ignored as the pipeline is now pushed on our territories.
Today we held ceremony and protested peacefully in prayer in opposition of KXL.
Thank you everyone for the prayers and to our Blackfeet and Northern Cheyenne relatives who stood with us today as we were surrounded by helicopters, private security, border patrol, and drones.
We will stand firm against the KXL, we need you to stand with us.
-- Kokipasni 'No Fear'
