Winona LaDuke remains jailed at Wadena County Jail late Wednesday. Aitken County issued a warrant for her arrest and was preparing to transport her.
After posting bail, Winona's supporters at Wadena County Jail, were told Winona would not be released.
Water Protectors said it is a clear effort by law enforcement to suppress the leadership protecting the water at Stop Enbridge Line 3.

Many of these Native youth runners ran for the water -- from Standing Rock to DC -- before the Water Protector Camps were created to protect the water from Dakota Access Pipeline in 2016.
