Fox News West Dakota reports that at a recent Tribal Council meeting on November 1, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council voted 10-0 to ask the Red Warrior Camp to leave the protests.

The former spokesperson for the Red Warrior Camp, Cody Hall, was quoted as saying that elders were worried that some of the camp members' messages were becoming increasingly violent, and they questioned whether or not they were concerned for the safety of all the protesters opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Hall, while saying that he does not speak for the group, believes the Red Warrior Camp is still present at the camp. Also, he insists that the Tribal Council only wanted to remove the specific segment responsible for the agitation, and that he doesn't think they wanted the entire camp gone.

On the #NoDAPL Solidarity website, the Red Warrior Camp is termed as "established in partnership with the Sacred Stone Camp to help guide the nonviolent direct action resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline."

The popular movement against the Dakota Access Pipeline has grown, and includes high-profile Americans celebrities and politicians like Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders.
