Will the largest protest involving Native Americans and their water protector allies be written off as only a garbage-producing nightmare?

James Magaska Swan, a leading Native American activist, a writer, and a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe has a few things to say about this egregious spin-doctoring and writes a convincing and compelling op-ed on 'Daily Kos' concerning the garbage issue being no more than garbage.
