Jaden was also seen alongside his sister and protestors as they picketed with signs reading "Protect Our Water." The pipeline is expected to bring crude oil through the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.

Peaceful protestors have been met with militarized law enforcement and over 100 protestors have been arrested so far. Willow also posted a drawing that depicts Native Americans and law enforcement at odds with the hashtag #nodapl.
As news about the protest heats up, we hope things remain peaceful and that Native Americans are able to save their land and water from being destroyed.
