Over 1,200 Academics Sign Petition Against Dakota Pipeline


More than 1,200 archaeologists, anthropologists, curators, museum officials and academics have signed a letter in support of the protests against the Dakota Access pipeline and calling on the U.S. government and its agencies to further its halt on the construction of the oil facility.

In the letter, released Wednesday, a total of 1,281 people slammed the destruction of Native Americans' sacred land.

“We join the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in denouncing the recent destruction of ancient burial sites, places of prayer and other significant cultural artifacts sacred to the Lakota and Dakota people,” said the letter, initiated by the Natural History Museum.
