Minutes after a federal judge Friday crushed the Sioux's hopes for an injunction on the 1,200-mile oil project, the Obama administration stepped in with its own plan to press pause — drawing a quick shift from outrage to elation from pipeline opponents.

"Our hearts are full," tribal Chairman David Archambault II said after the announcement. "This is an historic day for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and for tribes across the nation."
