Tribal chairman calls checkpoint removal overdue


Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II said Tuesday’s decision by law enforcement to remove the traffic checkpoint on North Dakota Highway 1806 is long overdue.

“It was always unnecessary,” said Archambault, noting that he’s been asking for its removal since it was set up in September.

Law enforcement has said the checkpoint between Mandan and the Dakota Access Pipeline protest encampments was critical to protect motorists driving down the highway as well as protesters camped near the road or walking along it.
