    Official archaeological report (AP)

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota state inspection of an oil pipeline site has found no sign of the Native American artifacts or human remains that an American Indian Tribe says are present, the state's chief archaeologist said in a draft memo.

    The Standing Rock Sioux tribe had cited the potential for burial grounds and other artifacts as a major reason to lead protests that have stymied completion of the project.

    Chief Archaeologist Paul Picha said in the memo first published Monday by conservative blogger Rob Port that seven state archeologists inspected the 1.3-mile section along the route of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline in southern North Dakota. The memo said only some animal teeth and bone fragments were found during the survey last week.

    Historical Society spokeswoman Kim Jondahl confirmed the contents of the memo but said it was "a first draft of an internal summary." She declined to say how the draft differed from later versions.

    In early September, Standing Rock Sioux officials said crews bulldozed several sites of "significant cultural and historic value" on private land, which Dallas-based pipeline builder Energy Transfer Partners denies. It led to a clash between protesters and private security guards hired by the pipeline company. Law enforcement officials said four security guards and two guard dogs received medical treatment, while a tribal spokesman countered that six people were bitten by guard dogs and at least 30 people were pepper-sprayed.

    The Morton County Sheriff's Department is heading up the probe of the Sept. 3 incident at the construction site near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

    In an incident on Sunday, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier says about 200 people confronted about 30 security guards at a construction site. The sheriff says all but three security guards left the construction site. The sheriff says law enforcement officers witnessed one of the security guards being carried by protesters for about 100 yards. The guard was treated for minor injuries by paramedics. No arrests were made.

    Picha did not return telephone calls Monday about the memo. The state Historical Society and the Morton County Sheriff's Department declined to release the memo, saying it was part of an ongoing investigation by law enforcement.

    The clash between security guards and protesters on Sept. 3 came one day after the tribe filed court papers saying it found burials, rock piles called cairns and other sites of historic significance to Native Americans along the pipeline's path.

    Tribal preservation officer Tim Mentz said in court documents that the tribe was only recently allowed to survey private land, which is now owned by the pipeline company.

    Standing Rock Sioux tribal members could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.

    But Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II has said previously that construction crews removed topsoil across an area about 150 feet wide stretching for 2 miles.

    "This demolition is devastating," Archambault said. "These grounds are the resting places of our ancestors. The ancient cairns and stone prayer rings there cannot be replaced. In one day, our sacred land has been turned into hollow ground."

Their is an open mic and many non natives wanna talk but the verbiage used is not going over well with the natives... respect the fact you are a guest their to help and not push your own ideologies...

    If you are not there or don't plan on going, the amazon wish list is the best way to contribute in my opinion... that way you are not just giving money blindly to things you don't know what they go too.

    also, they are planning winter camp, if you go and have building skills, bring tools, if you have knowledge on solar and wind bring your information and be ready to work, its not a pow wow . It is a prayer ceremony 24 hours a day, respect that....no alcohol, no drugs (including weed) no weapons... no cig buts in the prayer fire.... and learn the culture you are entering...
    Hi thunder24, just a bump for a very important post... thank you for the great pics and practical advice for those who are able to go and help!

    This is very close to my heart as I've studied Native American history (true history!) for most of my life and with listening to friends from various tribes I know what's been done to them and what continues to this day. These days I'm filled with gratitude and awe seeing so many tribes and individuals joining together to protect the waters and take a stand against those who would use and destroy. I would love to be there standing with everyone in person as this fight is so vital to us all... though it is not possible at this time I am doing what I can to assist on other levels.

    We are watching history in the making and I strongly feel that regardless of what the b*stards try, this unity will bring more powerfully positive outcomes than we can know now. Much respect.

    Yes! It's felt like destiny to me from the start... I got a wisp of feeling of why there's been so much thrown at them over time to try and extinguish them, which thankfully did not happen. Meant to be! <3

    Quote We need everyone able to come join us at Standing Rock.

    Today's action where uncalled for, the police was a direct threat to woman and children.

    We gathered in prayer un-armed, prayed, sang songs, and attempted to leave. No threats, No vandalism, No violence was taken on our part. (See my previous video evidence)

    Flood the White House with phone calls and demand Obama to act and enforce his previous declaration of no construction. With state police protecting Dakota Access Pipeline his words are meaningless.

    Earlier in the day the Protectors took the lead and began to shake the Terrorists hands and soon it was a long line of handshaking..........Corporation probably went Ape****e when they witnessed this display of respect both ways and began the onslaught of intimidation thereafter!!

    I'm probably driving my friends crazy with my digital communications non stop re: Standing Rock but so be it.........this is a paradygm shift right on our doorstep and I'm not missing the chance to push it forward every chance I get...........people must know what is happening NOW!!

    Standing Rock is just the beginning and if we let this happen there will be no turning back IMHO...............

    Quote GUEST: Nick Tilsen, Executive Director, Thunder Valley Community Development Corp, a member of the Oglala Lakota tribe
    BACKGROUND: While mainstream media attention to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests has already waned, activists are refusing to back down. Since April of this year indigenous leaders and tribal members have set up camp in Cannonball, North Dakota, near one portion of the controversial pipeline project. The protests grew enormously in September when activists of diverse backgrounds joined in to express solidarity. Under the hashtag #NODAPL, spirited demonstrations captured national attention.

    Bizarrely, the AFL-CIO, the nation's largest federation of labor unions, recently issued an official position supporting the pipeline claiming it would help create jobs. Despite this, opposition to the project remains firm and has even spread to other parts of the pipeline, which extends across four states.

    Just went to a community event last night, a fundraiser for the DAPL protesters. Dropped off coats and food. Lots of community businesses provided support for the event. Some community members had gone there and came back with their stories and insights.

    Huge crowd showed up in solidarity. There was a silent auction, Native American speakers and music, community speakers and music, food, and dancing. Great slide show of the protest site.

    What a demonstration of unified action!

    So many contributions are on their way!

    Love to all,

    "While our Amazon list has been enormously helpful, and we are so grateful for everything received so far (we will release photos of donations received soon), we have a need to be able to run up to Bismarck and purchase needed supplies on the fly.

    One way that this can be done is for donations to be sent via gift cards. Here are a few options that would greatly help us in making our daily operations run smoothly. Again, thank you all for your support in making sure that our water protectors and everyone at the camps are safe and healthy.

    If you plan to send gift cards to any other stores, please check with us first as Bismarck doesn't have every store in town and the gift cards may not be useful. Thanks for bearing with us as we try our best to help the medics and healers at camp stay operational.

    Note: Please use medichealercouncil@gmail.com for the recipient of any of these gift cards. You can send physical gift cards to the following address until we get our PO Box set up:

    Quote BISMARCK, N.D. - Sparks flew at the gubernatorial debate at the Belle Mehus Auditorium in Bismarck Monday night, but it had little to do with the candidates.


    Around 200 people were outside the auditorium to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline Project.

    The protesters carried signs and chanted "Water is Life." They say they began the protest when it became clear those at the debate would not be allowed to question the candidates directly.

    "There was no Q & A. There was no public Q & A in a gubernatorial debate in Midwestern America. I mean, I'm sorry, but putting in a few questions here and there that are picked and choosed, that's not true democracy," says Joye Braun, Indigenous Environmental Network.

    Braun invited all three candidates to visit the Sacred Stone Camp to hear them out.

    Quote Amnesty International to Morton County Sheriff: Investigate Use of Force Against Protectors at DAPL

    Amnesty International USA
    10/3/16
    Editor’s note: On September 3, water protectors trying to stop the bulldozing of sacred sites to make way for the Dakota Access oil pipeline near the Missouri and Cannonball rivers were met with pepper spray and vicious dogs.

    RELATED: Manning: ‘And Then the Dogs Came’: Dakota Access Gets Violent, Destroys Graves, Sacred Sites

    Now Amnesty International USA is demanding answers, in a letter to Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, who has repeatedly claimed that the protectors are violent, even as his police force stood by during the attacks on unarmed protectors. The human-rights body also touches on the trespassing charges levied against journalist Amy Goodman, who recorded the events for Democracy Now!

    U.S. Government Just Declared WAR On Native Americans, State Gives Cops the Green Light To Shoot DAPL Protesters On Sight
    While Trump is busy targeting Mexicans and Muslims, his new adviser and current governor of North Dakota has just given the green light to “shoot on sight” Indigenous tribes that are peacefully protesting against the Dakota Access pipeline, according to Anarchic News.

    Please share this with the world let them know how they are treating us… we are not terrorist! We are defending the land and the water! Protecting out future!

    I saw that, but when you go to the source they didn't have a link of that up, and no one from camp is posting about it or talking about it...

    "Relatives, I'm just getting back from a long Stand at Standing Rock Reservation. There's so much passion, power and prayer to be shared! It was excruciating to leave, but I'm on a mission: "It's just a big supply run!"
    First and foremost are the practical ways that YOU can help Stand! The People need every one of us to do what we can to protect the Water. Every contribution is a huge prayer, no matter the size. We will stop DAPL with our Standing and Prayers!
    They are protecting the Waters for all of us, so let's support them.
    The lists of needs are great. Think bodies on the Frontline in arctic winter conditions. Imagine the historic gathering of tribes from all over the country, all over the world...and they will NOT leave camp until the Black Snake has been stopped. (In fact, this encampment is now being made a permanent green built community forever!) Elders, mothers and children Standing. THAT'S commitment. While you sit in your comfortable surrounding worried about first world conveniences, they are protecting the water that nourishes 2/3rds of this country. Shivers. WATER IS LIFE!

    Quote Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II on October 5 reiterated his commitment to keeping the Dakota Access oil pipeline away from the tribe’s drinking water after a U.S. District Court postponed ruling on a request for a permanent halt to the construction along its designated route a half mile from the reservation.

    “Millions of people across the country and world, more than 300 federally-recognized tribes, members of Congress and dozens of city governments across the country stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline,” Archambault said in a statement after the court postponed a decision, leaving the temporary injunction in place. “We stand together in peaceful prayer and solidarity because this pipeline threatens the lives of the more than seventeen million people who rely on the Missouri River for their water. This pipeline has already destroyed the burial places of our Lakota and Dakota ancestors. If construction continues, our people stand to lose even more of our sacred places and cultural objects.”

    The tribe had requested an injunction that would halt construction of the pipeline while it appeals Judge James Boasberg’s initial denial. While the construction has been stopped temporarily by a second court ruling while the federal government reevaluates the procedure, work could resume once a final decision is made.

    The 1,172-mile-long, $3.8 billion project has been under contention since it was first proposed in 2014 by Energy Transfer Partners. Thousands of people have been camped near the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers to protect the water.

    Archambault also invoked the trust responsibility held by the administration of President Barack Obama and all federal agencies to honor treaties signed in the 1800s, under which the tribe retained the right to be consulted about what was done to its land.

    “The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved the pipeline without consulting with our tribe,” Archambault said. “The approval of this pipeline by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a violation of our treaty rights and we will not stop fighting until our lands, people, water and sacred places are permanently protected.”

    Quote Federal judges grill opponents of Dallas firm's Dakota Access pipeline
    WASHINGTON -- A federal appeals court panel had tough questions for opponents of the $3.8 billion, four-state Dakota Access oil pipeline who are arguing to keep a temporary stop of construction in place.

    The three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard arguments Wednesday in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's request to continue blocking work on a section of the approximately 1,200-mile pipeline near Lake Oahe (oh-AH'-hee) while the tribe seeks to appeal a lower-court ruling from September.

    The pipeline, which runs through North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois, is otherwise nearly complete.
    The tribe says the pipeline, being built by Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners, will impact sites of historic, religious and cultural significance.

    The judges didn't say when they'd rule.
