Organized by an indigenous group, The Last Real Indians, the rally demanded that the Justice Department intervene to protect water protectors being sprayed with water cannons in subzero weather, with tear gas and pepper spray and subjected to a massive militarized police response to peaceful prayer. The rally called out for an end of the use of violence by Morton County Police including stopping the use of water cannons in freezing temperatures, mace, attack dogs, concussion grenades, and the list goes on and on. Chase Iron Eyes, Dolores Huerta, Alayna Eagle Shield, and others spoke. There were performances by Lakota Thunder drum group, Tonia Jo Hall and Jingle Dress Dancers.
