Revisiting Oceti Camp
nima taradji photography
Feb 17, 2022
On February 2017, the law enforcement in riot gear and automatic weapons entered the Oceti Sakowin Camp and forced all resident to leave and arrested a number of persons. The Oceti Sakowin Camp was cleared and closed. As they exited, the tribes engaged in ritual burning of their tippies and tents and whatever they could not take with them.

I re-visited the site of the protest camp in North Dakota in 2021. The area is clean and there is no indication that a protest ever took place. The pipeline was allowed to proceed when President Trump was elected and when he reversed the stop work order by President Obama…  
Currently, the affected tribes are involved with a fight with the Army Corps of Engineers and the environmental impact study that is being devised. The tribe believe that the outfit engaged to make such a study is biased and should be fired. They have stopped participating in the process.
