Standing Rockstar Red Fawn is seduced by infiltrator, set up with his gun, then urged by lawyers to cop a plea. What?!

I had a lot of fun at Standing Rock. The spontaneous resistance in Cannonball, ND, and the environmental movement it spearheaded, was for me the most inspiring uprising of 2016. My favorite memories were watching the ever increasing flow of distant tribal delegations make their formal running entrances into the main camp. Indigenous peoples came from across the world to join the largest NDN resistance gathering since the Little Big Horn. I was encouraged to see the keen interest of the international press and documentary filmmakers even though local and national media stayed clear. Standing Rock was also not all that it was billed to be. It wasn't going to be DAPL's Last Stand. The scene was dominated by patriarchal religious elders who stymied initiative, unity, and best practice at every turn. If it wasn't for the actions led by the Red Warrior Camp, maligned and disowned by tribal leadership, the gathered "Water Protectors" would not have protected or resisted a thing. Every media victory, every provoked outrage, and every setback for the DAPL was orchestrated against the orders of the official organizers, whose sabotage was abetted by the usual passivist NGO allies and their PC scolds.
