Protectors were making an attempt to reach the beach on the other side on land supposedly under the control of the Army Corp of Engineers, on land at the bottom of Turtle Hill, a bluff that Dakota elders say contain burials. Dakota Access, the owner of the Dakota Access pipeline project continued to construct the line over the objections of tribes from through-out the United States, pleas from the President of the United States and Army Corps of Engineers to voluntarily refrain from continuing that portion of the pipeline until alternatives could be considered and worked out.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (ICC) C hickasaw Nation warriors laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery Nov. 10 to honor veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice defending freedom. Four retired Chickasaw veterans represented their tribe at the national shrine. They included Vietnam veteran and U.S. Marine Hank Cease, of Goose Creek, South Carolina; George Riddle, of Yuma, Arizona, who served in the U.S. Army 30 years; Danny Landreth, of Ardmore, Oklahoma, who served the U.S Navy 21 years, and Lee Jennings, a Marlow, Oklahoma, resident who served in World War II and Korea with the Army and U.S. Air Force. The experience was overwhelming, Landreth said of the ceremony, especially to be in the presence of the other great and honorable veterans. To lay the wreath was probably the pinnacle of my military experience, he added fighting to contain his emotions. You are given an opportunity to represent someone who gave his life; someone who cant speak. We have to speak for them, otherwise they will be forgotten, Landreth said. Riddle also said the experience was the best thing that ever happened to me. It was such an honor and a privilege Asheville restaurateur cooks for water protectors By MACKENSY LUNSFORD The Asheville Citizen-Times ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) R estaurant owners sometimes famously pin themselves to pet causes. There was the wading into gay- marriage issues by Chick-Fil-A chief operating officer Dan T. Cathy. And owners of McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts restaurants lobbied to tweak Affordable Care Act rules to increase the hours employees should work to be eligible for health care. But in left-leaning Asheville, causes tend to take a liberal slant. For example, Rosetta Buan, owner of Rosetta's Kitchen, an Asheville fixture for more than 14 years, has made repeat trips to North Dakota to help feed people opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline is a $3.7 billion Energy Transfer Partners project to transport nearly 500,000 barrels of oil a day in a 1,000-mile journey from North Dakota to refining markets. Plans are to build it close to the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation. Critics say it could pollute the reservations water supply and other areas along its path. The Sioux are among a number of tribes who are environmental protectors, conducting demonstrations in numbers that have swelled into the thousands and become increasingly heated as police presence increases. In Asheville, Buan watched on social media as a woman tried to cook food for demonstrators over a fire, and heard of hours-long waits for bowls of soup at the Oceti Sakowin Kitchen in the main camp. So on Sept. 14, with some crew and family members, Buan pointed a blue Sprinter van and bus into the sunset and drove for two nights, arriving near the Standing Rock reservation before dawn on the 16th. Through friends involved in disaster relief, shed secured a 12-burner restaurant stove, a 30-inch griddle, a 40-gallon tilt kettle, stainless steel tables and a couple of tents, which she used to help organized the camp kitchen. Buan doesnt want to be seen as a savior of any sort. Using business as a tool to create positive change has always been a part of what we do, so its nothing new for us, she said. Its nothing new for other restaurant owners in town, who have leveraged their Photo by Max Cooper See Asheville restaurateur, Page 5 See Chickasaw veterans lay, Page 5
