Native Americans Hold Largest Convergence in a Century to Oppose Oil Pipeline

 


JAISAL NOOR, TRNN PRODUCER: It's being called the largest gathering of Native Americans in a century. This week, eight were arrested in North Dakota, along with 30 in Iowa, trying to halt the construction of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline. This is part of a growing indigenous-led movement to stop the pipeline, which will span four states and carry half a million barrels of crude oil. Supporters say it will bring jobs and clean energy, but critics say it endangers drinking water and sites sacred to the Standing Rock Sioux, and potentially millions of others, in a filed lawsuit in federal court.

Well, now joining us to discuss this is Krystal Two Bulls. She's a water protector with Red Warrior Camp, and she just returned home to Albuquerque after spending two weeks there.

Thanks so much for joining us.
