INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS The Highlights Chase Iron Eyes returned to ND and will likely realign the extreme elements under his leadership. The recent information regarding traps being constructed, and flammable liquids being gathered, could indicate future violent activity from this small faction. The arrival of protestors from “Veterans Respond” will likely change direct action capability in the next 24-48 hours. VR’s stated intent is to assist in cleanup, yet recent press releases contradict this message, clearly indicating the intent to train and assist local protestors in resistance towards camp removal. Local pro-DAPL sentiment, as well as expansion of anti-protestor groups, is growing. SRST’s perceived corruption is openly discussed and some citizens are preparing for possible retaliation against protestors. Pretending to be sympathetic to NODAPL, locals have entered the camp to expose the contamination due to human waste and refuse. This coverage, promoted and shared on Social Media, has directly discredited popular belief of protest’s being environmentally motivated. The Details A. NORTH DAKOTA FUSION CENTER ii. Intel Update a. Persons, possibly veterans, were observed wearing body armor in a video filmed in Camp 2’s veteran’s kitchen. This was most likely an advance party. Though the veterans will be staying near Camp 4, their operations are expected to be launched from Camp 2. Expectations for the veterans have not been established, but we can expect infiltration attempts on DAPL property, as well as homemade weapons and shields being produced for actions. b. Radio chatter will be a significant indicator of military syntax changes and new callsigns. Veterans might also use their own radio channel. As in the last veterans support event, they used misdirection and misinformation on Social Media, making it difficult to establish intent and capability. Expansion, or relocation, of a listening post at OP11 may yield increased situational awareness due to proximity of RF devices. iii. Past 24 Hours a. Facebook live-feed confirms Chase Iron Eyes has returned to Standing Rock and once again will take a leadership role in the protesters camps. b. Reporting states that protesters rented approximately 50 vehicles from Bismarck Airport yesterday. TigerSwan Prepared for Energy Transfer Partners 1

Conducted after business hours’ security inspection of Patoka pipe yard and pump station. iv. Next 24 Hours a.
