IE Tribes Join Native American Protest Against North Dakota Oil Pipeline


An 1,100 mile long pipeline being built by Texas-based Dakota Access is slated to carry 470,000 barrels of oil daily through treaty lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota.  Although mainstream media has not provided much coverage of this story, the tribe has been protesting the pipeline and attracting support from American sympathizers and native people across the continent.  The Standing Rock Sioux argue that they were not adequately consulted on the project and claim the construction and pipeline will endanger water supplies and damage culturally-sensitive sites on ancestral lands.  KVCR's Rick Dulock has an update on what's been happening in North Dakota and beyond.
