Native American tribe takes oil fight to the United Nations
Dave Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, waits to speak against the Energy Transfer Partners’ Dakota Access oil pipeline during the Human Rights Council session at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Sept. 20, 2016.
CANNON BALL, NORTH DAKOTA
The simmering showdown here between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline began as a legal battle.
It has turned into a movement.
We are ALL connected through NATURE!!
Over the past few weeks, thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have traveled to this central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow and show solidarity with a tribe they think is once again receiving a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.
That river is the source of water for the reservation’s 8,000 residents.
Any leak, tribal leaders argue, would cause immediate and irreparable harm. And tribal leaders point to what they consider a double standard, saying that the pipeline was originally going to cross the Missouri north of Bismarck, the state capital, but was rerouted because of powerful opposition that did not want a threat to the water supply there.
The tribe says it also is fighting the pipeline’s path because, even though it does not cross the reservation, it traverses sacred territory taken away from the tribe in a series of treaties that have been forced upon it over the past 150 years.
