Fear of contaminated water spurs Native American protest against Texas company's oil pipeline


CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) - Plains American Indians and others are taking part in a 500-mile spiritual relay to show their opposition to a proposed $3.8 billion oil pipeline from North Dakota to Illinois.

Opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline are running from Cannon Ball, North Dakota, on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers district office in Omaha, Nebraska, where they will deliver a petition asking the Corps to conduct a more thorough environmental study of the planned pipeline.
