At a Tribal Council meeting on November 1, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council voted 10-0 to ask the Red Warrior Camp to leave.

Cody Hall, the former spokesperson for the Red Warrior Camp, says elders were concerned with some camp members' messages becoming more violent and questioned if they were thinking of the safety of everyone involved in the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Hall said he no longer speaks for the group but believes they are still present at the camps and haven't yet moved. He emphasized that the Tribal Council wanted to remove agitators within the group, and he doesn't believe they want the whole camp to leave.

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