Keystone Blockade on Pine Ridge Reservation Leads to Arrests

Five American Indians were arrested March 5, after a six-hour blockade on the Pine Ridge Reservation that stopped two large trucks carrying parts of the Keystone XL Pipeline tried to cross through the reservation.

Following her release from jail, Debra White Plume said, “Alex (Debra’s husband), myself, Sam Long Black Cat, Andrew Iron Shell and Don Iron Shell were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. We formed a blockade to stop tarsands oil mine equipment from passing our land.”

White Plume said there was about 50 to 75 people that took part in the blockade in the Eagle Nest District of Wanbli, on the northern side of the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Indian Country Today Media Network will continue to report on this story throughout the day.
