Emma: “My dad has land and soon it will be mine.”

Dear Assistant Secretary Darcy & The Army Corps of Engineers,

My name is Emma Jayne Lester and I’m 13 years old. I’m from Cannonball, ND Standing Rock Reservation. I like to go fishing. If the water is bad, so are the fish. So, what’s the point of even having summer?

I am writing this letter to say my dad has land and soon it will be mine, but by the time I get it, it will be wrecked by the Dakota Access Pipeline.

I am protesting the Dakota access pipeline. Water is important because it keeps me clean and if I don’t have water I’m going to look like Pig Pen from “Charlie Brown” and I’m going to stink.

Sincerely,

Emma Jayne Lester

Solen high school student
