21 Arrested During Peaceful Prayer Ceremony at Standing Rock

The Morton County Sheriff’s Department, whose officers used mace and unleashed dogs on Dakota Access Pipeline protestors earlier this month, sent in armored vehicles and arrested 21 people Wednesday at two sites. But a video released by those at the Sacred Ground Camp shows unarmed protestors conducting a prayer ceremony involving the planting of willow and corn.

“We had a really nice ceremony,” said a Sicangu Lakota grandmother. “Then we looked and over that way, there were a few police and the next thing we knew there were 40 police all in riot gear.”
