Veterans head north on State Hwy. 1806 in formation, as more amass in thousands to Oceti Sakowin Camp in support of water protectors, on Sunday, December 4, 2016.
Water protectors had encircled the Oceti Sakowin Camp in prayer when word spread from Sacred Fire that the Army Corps of Engineers denied a permit for the continued construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Sunday, December 4, 2016.
Joel Maurer, 40, from Willits, Calif., bought the materials from Lowe’s to build and donate this “tiny winter bunk house” complete with two bunks, a loft and wood stove, to house water protectors for the winter months.
