Cops Arrest Native American For Singing ‘Honor Song’ After Keystone Pipeline Voted Down

Many of us remember the controversy surrounding Elizabeth Warren referring to herself as Native American. A 1997 article from the Fordham Law Review listed the Massachusetts Senator as the “first woman of color” hired by Harvard Law School.

But in spite of her questionable Native heritage, Elizabeth Warren called the Senate police on Greg Grey Cloud who had tried to honor the legislators who voted against polluted water tables within Native and non-Native communities.

Grey Cloud had sang what’s called an “honor song” but Warren and police said it was a “flash mob.”

Instead, Gyasi Ross explained, it was “an earnest and honest expression of Indigenous love and appreciation for these politicians who decided to be leaders instead of politicians for one day.”

5. Yeah, they seemed to have exaggerated the situation.

Not very surprising.

3. It's against the law to disrupt congress

Doesn't matter if you sing, yell or throw something. The gallery is set up for spectators and you aren't permitted to talk.

4. It's simple civil disobedience. He got his message across.

Good for him. It was probably worth the fine.

I know I was impressed with his response and happy to hear his voice. It sounded like a sigh of relief coming directly from Earth.
