Sacred Stone is located on Allard’s private property
UPDATE: On Thursday, law enforcement along with the BIA and other federal agencies arrived at LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard’s property where Sacred Stone Camp is set up. The Sacred Stone Camp was not raided. However, it is believed that law enforcement went to Allard’s property to begin building a case to attempt to shut down the Sacred Stone Camp. No arrests were made yesterday.
On Thursday morning, law enforcement showed up at LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard’s front door in regards to the Sacred Stone Camp. An officer on the scene claimed on Johnny Dangers’ livestream law enforcement came at the request of the Standing Rock Sioux tribal council.
Frank White Bull and Ben Harrison were said to be with law enforcement during the raid, which is the latest in a series of betrayals from the Standing Rock Sioux tribal council against water protectors. Allard has been very outspoken in regards to the deceit by the tribal council in the previous weeks.
No Warrant was provided
Dangers went live on his Facebook account shortly law enforcement arrived. Allard’s property is the home of the Sacred Stone Camp. Those occupying the Sacred Stone Camp have refused to leave the area, despite requests from the governor, law enforcement, and the tribal council.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs were also on scene. A warrant was requested to be seen but was not provided. The lack of a warrant did not stop the BIA from going on Allard’s property. Dangers livestream was interrupted while law enforcement agencies went through Allard’s property.
Other livestreams have popped up for moments, but quickly went down following Dangers’ feed. A common problem in the area due to the use of stingrays. A list of livestreamers in the area can be found by clicking here.
Over 70 arrested on Wednesday
On Wednesday, over 70 were arrested for attempting to set up a new camp. The short lived Last Child Camp was deemed to be an “illegal camp” set up by “rogue protesters,” according to Governor along with Morton County Sheriff’s Department. An accusation water protectors denied.
Since President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order to push through both the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL, there has been a growing fear of a raid on the camps where water protectors have been staying for months.
