Standing Rock and the Dakota Access Pipeline: Native American Perspectives: Home


This guide is to provide Native American perspectives on the Dakota Access Pipeline, a 1,200 mile oil pipeline to be built through the land of the Standing Rock Sioux people and across the Missouri River which provides drinking water and water for agriculture for millions of Americans. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe has opposed the Dakota Access Pipeline since first learning about the plans for the pipeline in 2014. Protests against the pipeline began with tribal members and more people and organizations are joining the effort. This guide is not meant to be comprehensive but will be updated as we discover more sources.
