Standing Rock Indian Reservation is in Sioux County, North Dakota, U.S.A. Cannonball, N.D is the place of the Spirit Circle where over 100 tribes and 1,000+ supporters have gathered along the Cannonball River to demonstrate against the $3.8 Dakota Access pipeline as the #NoDAPL movement. It is in the Northeastern part of Sioux County where the Cannonball River meets Lake Oahe of the Missouri River.
The pipeline is being challenged by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, represented by the national nonprofit Earthjustice, in a lawsuit against the U.S. government over the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. The lawsuite (FAQ on litigation here) maintains the pipeline would threaten both their water supply and ancestral burial grounds. The pipeline, a project of Energy Transfer Partners , is slated to extend from North Dakota to Illinois, carrying crude oil from the Bakken Shale Play. The Bakken Shale Play is located in Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota, as well as parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba in the Williston Basin.

RISE With Standing Rock
ublished on Oct 10, 2016
There's a revolution happening in Standing Rock, at the O?héthi Šakówi? camp, and across the country. Over 200 indigenous American nations and 6,000 people have travelled to the community in an unprecedented act of solidarity. Catalyzed by the fight against Dakota Access Pipeline, Native American tribes are protecting their water, but even more, protecting their sovereignty in the face of a colonialist State. In a time when we still celebrate Christopher Columbus, violent colonizer, the indigenous rights movement is more important than ever.
On Indigenous People's Day 2016, we're #StandingWithStandingRock. Journalist Jonathan Klett connects what's happening in North Dakota to what's happening in D.C. Chase Iron Eyes, US Representative Candidate for North Dakota and Judith LeBlanc, director of the Native organizers Alliance, speak to what's at stake in this fight.
