Paiute Shoshone Journalist Myron Dewey was killed when a truck pulled into his lane on an isolated dirt road near his family's home in Yomba, Nevada. The previous day, Myron live-streamed from the Fallon Bombing Range used by Navy Seals. Myron warned of the lithium mining now targeting the Paiute Massacre Site at Thacker Pass.
Myron documented the private security and militarized law enforcement at Standing Rock in 2016 and 2017. Mryon's photography and videos from drone surveillance were important evidence that could have been used in the ongoing lawsuits by Water Protectors critically injured while defending the water at Standing Rock.
