Work starts on teepee adjacent to Ogawa Plaza.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, November 29, 2011, Lone Wolf, a Native American, was initially thwarted in an effort to erect a teepee on Frank Ogawa Plaza, site of the Occupy Oakland protest.

After repeated conferences between protesters, a lawyer, police and city officials a permit was issued for a teepee to be erected adjacent to the Plaza with restrictions.

With scores of journalists recording the event, construction of the teepee was begun.

A tent curfew late Tuesday night might provide a new confrontation.

One of the books that was available at the Occupy Oakland library was “The Little Engine That Could.” 

Is that poignantcy in action or what?
