Cannon Ball – On November 20th at approximately 6PM CST over 100 Water Protectors from the Oceti Sakowin and Sacred Stone Camps mobilized to a nearby bridge to remove a barricade that was built by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department and the State of North Dakota. This barricade, built after law enforcement raided the 1851 treaty camp, not only restricts North Dakota residents from using the 1806 freely but also puts the community of Cannon Ball, the camps, and the Standing Rock Tribe at risk as emergency services are unable to use that highway…
The mindset of the times, back, way back in history. We must, they say put our thoughts, assumptions aside when reading history, and not to make moral judgement on people who lived a few hundred years before me.. After all, they were different people, in different times. I said, I think they knew it was wrong.
Apparently so did others from those days.
The roots of American culture lie in the soil of the indigenous people.
