Native Tribes, Law Enforcement Face Off Puts Controversial Pipeline Work On Hold


Hundreds of protesters from three tribes and their allies stopped construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for the second day in a row Wednesday, but law enforcement and private security are now preparing to amp up their presence.

The Standing Rock, Rosebud and Lower Brule Lakota tribes have been resisting the pipeline since it was approved by the U.S. Senate in January and by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in July, building sacred camps on the pipeline’s proposed path to pray, hold ceremonies on horseback and push back workers and police protecting the construction.

LaDonna Allard, whose property is the site of an indefinite spirit camp, told teleSUR in July that her son is buried on the proposed path, which is supposed to be protected burial grounds.
