"...Eight years ago, we started this battle against the Black Snake here in the north. At that time I had a dream ... it was about the oil coming towards our people ... coming towards our relatives and land. I dreamed we should ride our horses against the current of the oil so we rode the KXL ... the Sandpiper and then later on the Dakota Access Pipeline. Now we ride Line 3. The Sandpiper was cancelled in 20l6 after a lot of citizen resistance, prayers, and the day our horse ride ended. KXL was cancelled finally by the Biden Administration. Enbridge hopes to pump oil through Line 3 by the end of October 2021. We are going to have a prayer ride again. Here's our story from 2014- Watch and support us ... prayers, funds, and food..." - Winona LaDuke
