Crossing to Turtle Island
While many Americans prepared their Thanksgiving dinner, on Thursday, November 24, 2016, water protectors from all over the country and world marched to Cannonball River, where they held prayer, built a bridge, and crossed the river to Turtle Island.
Water protectors sang at the base of sacred burial site Turtle Island, while armed police stood atop it. Prayer was held in peace.
