The pipeline company approached the tribe and offered $2M to cross the reservation. The tribe demanded $20M. The company rerouted across private land to avoid the reservation. This whole circus of idiots and domestic terrorists showed up. Gun them down and get back to business.
Of you’ve followed the story at all? A majority of the tribe members who live in the area are in favor of the pipeline. There are jobs and money to be made.
They have a rather corrupt leadership who tried to extort money out of the pipeline company.
Now? Their homes have been invaded by this freak show.
