The Red Warrior Society started out as the Red Warrior Camp. They were responsible for much of the direct action which led to increased police involvement and pulled the protest away from its original peaceful approach. They became such a problem that the tribe asked them to leave before they came to the decision to ask the protesters to leave in whole. Red Warrior Camp became Red Warrior Society, and promised to take their violent actions elsewhere to other protests and situations they deemed appropriate. RWC/RWS was one entity named in the lawsuit that ETP filed in 2017.
