Harold Frazier, the chairman of the Cheye River Reservation, blasted TC Energy — the company formerly known as TransCanada — in a statement.

“Any vehicles or personnel working on the Keystone XL pipeline are not welcome on this reservation,” Frazier said.

“Unlike the United States we welcome free speech and concerned citizens standing up for the law. This is Sioux Territory, we will not stand for more encroachments and defilement of our land,” he promised.

“I would like to thank the tribal members who brought this to our attention and stand with them in our opposition to the KXL pipeline,” Frazier added.
