  Thursday, December 1 – A recording has come to light of a September 2014 meeting between representatives of Energy Transfer Partners and the Standing Rock Tribal Council.

In this clip we hear from former tribal council member Phyllis Young. Listen to the entire recording HERE. ~~~ In Sunday’s New York Times, writer and critic David Treuer wrote that the protestors are taking a stand for all Americans.
