Just look at a recent vote in the community for further proof that Fool Bear’s not the only naysayer.  When protest organizers presented a request to build a new winter camp in Cannon Ball earlier this month, his community shot it down.

The tribal headquarters sits in the Sioux County seat of Fort Yates, nearly 30 miles south of the protests, population less than 200.     http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/29/us/dakota-pipeline-standing-rock-sioux/index.html
