TENSION REMAINS HIGH IN NORTH DAKOTA, AS THE STANDING
ROCK SIOUX TRIBE CONTINUES TO PROTEST THE DAKOTA ACCESS
IT WOULD RUN THROUGH FOUR STATES UNDER THE MISSOURI
SUPPORTERS OF THE PIPELINE SAY IT WILL NOT HARM THE
LOCAL ENVIRONMENT, BUT PROTESTORS WORRY THAT IT COULD
DISTURB SACRED TRIBAL LANDS.
THE STANDING ROCK SIOUX TRIBE'S EFFORTS HAVE CAUGHT
THE ATTENTION OF THE COUNTRY.
THEY'VE BEEN SHOWN SUPPORT ALL ACROSS THE COUNRY.
KXLY 4'S GRACE DITZLER SPOKE TO FOLKS IN OUR AREA
WHO SAY THEY STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PROTESTORS.
tribal members i spoke to today say the dakota access
pipeline will have negative impacts on the environment
and say this isn't an issue that affects just native
americans, or just people in north dakota, they say
it's a humanity issue and something we all should
be paying attention to
IT STARTED WITH PROTECTING THE LAND.
BUT TURNED INTO MUCH MORE.
let's not talk about how native americans are affected
by it, but how american society is affected by this
THE PROTESTS IN NORTH DAKOTA BRINGING TOGETHER HUNDREDS
OF NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES.
WITH ONE GOAL.
STOP THE OIL PIPELINE.
my concern is it's going to ruin the land and everything
that's sacred to the people that live there :6
DONNELL BARLOW, WITH THE OTTAWA TRIBE, MADE THAT TRIP,
EVEN THOUGH SHE'S FROM SPOKANE SHE FELT SPIRITUALLY
COMPELLED TO GO HELP AT THE CAMP'S KITCHEN.
it was definitely life changing, as soon as i got
there i felt the unity and power and i'd like to say
it's a spiritual movement going on out there
HOPI TRIBAL MEMBER JACOB JOHNS ALSO PROTESTED OVER
if you could go back in time and prevent flint michigan
from happening, i gaurantee people would, so this
is a preemptive step to stop that from ever taking
AND OTHERS LIKE IAITIA, A MEMBER OF THE STANDING ROCK
TRIBE, ARE WORKING TO RAISE AWARENESS HERE AT HOME.
11;28;17 iaitia farrell - member of standing rock
every day when i walk and i talk and i speak it's

based toward that
AND IT'S NOT JUST NATIVE AMERICANS JOINING IN THE
THIS GROUP CAME FROM SEATTLE.
DIFFRERENT PEOPLE, DIFFERENT TRIBES, BUT ALL SAY THEY'RE
A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER.

who were for the pipeline, they don't realize we're
out there fighting for each other, we are humanity
trying to heal itself and save itself
