In a twist of events, Energy Transfer Partners sued TigerSwan after TigerSwan released confidential documents to the North Dakota regulatory board.

TigerSwan, contracted mercenaries in warzones, was under probe for operating without a license in North Dakota when it spied on Standing Rock Water Protectors.

The Dakota Access Pipeline wants these documents sealed up, destroyed, and kept from the public.

Ah-ho My Relations,

Again many things have happened since I last wrote an update on our fight to defend our sacred mountain. The beginning of our gathering is only a few weeks away, and the local county government continues to license and permit booze and concert venues all around Bear Butte. In that respect nothing has changed, we still must come together this summer to stand in solidarity, united in our determination to defend Bear Butte. On a personal level I suffered a mild heart problem which hospitalized me for a while and has restricted my activities somewhat. I'm better now and the good thing is that Debra White Plume, Natalie Hand and Vic Camp have carried on in notifying people and societies of our efforts.
