Dakota Access Pipeline - Standing Rock Sioux encampment
Cannon Ball, North Dakota
September 24, 2016
The Standing Rock Sioux encampment near the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline stands against the construction of the new pipeline.
The Standing Rock Sioux, whose tribal lands are a half-mile south of the proposed route, say the pipeline would desecrate sacred burial and prayer sites, and could leak oil into the Missouri and Cannon Ball rivers, on which the tribe relies for water.
