Title of article says Dreamers and Warriors Unite. What do they mean by dreamers? No mention in article. Environmentalists?

Not a breath of press in Vermont about the action against the pipeline here. The gas pipeline is quite a controversy because it will go underneath Lake Champlain and that the gas company wants to pass its cost overruns onto Vermont customers. The press here are more than willing to discuss the cost overruns and how that will effect customers, but they don't discuss the action of activists on the ground to stop the pipeline altogether.

No they are warriors, according to Native American tradition. These are SPIRITUAL warriors, fighting for what is right and for the tribe's survival. There are warriors, wise councils of elders, shamans and great leaders gathered at Standing Rock. They follow a code of non-violence and exhaust all peaceful means possible. Kind of puts U.S. way of war to shame.
Their stated goal is that they are doing this for EVERYONE not just their tribe.
