After white supremacists drop dynamite from a bridge near the Shell City Water Protector camp, Dakota Sundancer Hoka Wicasa calls for allies to come and stand between the indigenous and the Proud Boys and to come pray for the water.

Shell City Water Protector camp is located at Shell City Campground, Shell City Dr, Menahga, MN 56464. It is a prayer and healing family camp holding sacred space for the Shell River, being threatened by Enbridge Line 3.
