Little Feather Released to Halfway House

The time has finally come for one of our greatest Indigenous NoDAPL Water Protectors to be released from prison. Little Feather has served 36 months in maximum security prison for protecting the water. His charges stemmed from October 27, 2106 when Treaty Camp was set up to honor the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851.

His family and friends could not be more thrilled. It takes a significant amount of strength and faith to not only survive in the federal prison system but to thrive! He used his time helping others when needed. It is time for us to help in any way we can to support him on his journey moving forward and healing from the time he spent away from his family and cultural practices.

We are asking our community and allies to help us welcome him back, and to help us support him through his journey of reintegration back into his community. It will be a journey of healing and we want him to have everything he needs on his journey.

Little Feather still has to endure four months in a North Dakota halfway house and three years of probation. We are attempting to get his probation transferred to New Mexico where his family resides.

Little Feather and his family would like to offer their appreciation and prayers for those of you who had stood by and with us. We are very blessed to have you all as our community, and you each have shown incredible acts of love, compassion, support and understanding to Little Feather.
