Tribe submits evidence of cultural sites in Dakota Access path


NEAR CANNON BALL, N.D.—The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe says it surveyed a portion of the Dakota Access Pipeline route this week and discovered multiple graves and other significant historical sites not previously identified.

Court documents filed Friday include statements from Tim Mentz, former tribal historic preservation officer, who surveyed about 2 miles of the pipeline corridor this week after receiving an invitation from the landowner.

Mentz writes in court documents that his survey located at least 27 burials, 16 stone rings, 19 effigies and other features in or adjacent to the pipeline corridor just north of the Standing Rock reservation.
