The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their allies have been locked in a legal and on-the-ground battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from being constructed through sacred, historical cultural sites without consultation. The DAPL also puts the Tribe’s only water source in jeopardy. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The Army Corps of Engineers has allowed several sections of construction to take place without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, numerous environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
The Standing Rock Sioux and their allies are standing against these injustices, trying to prevent another chapter in the long history that has been written of the federal government failing to meet its obligations to tribes.
