Indigenous Groups Prepare to Build Spiritual Camps Along Keystone XL Route
February 1, 2017
In response to Trump's presidential memorandum pushing the Keystone XL Pipeline forward, Indigenous environmentalists are planning to set up camps along the route—just as they did with the Dakota Access Pipeline.
In a press release sent to Colorlines yesterday (January 30), the Indigenous Environmental Network laid out the movement’s next steps to challenge the administration’s decisions: organizing new camps to oppose the Keystone XL and reviving camps at Standing Rock, North Dakota, against Dakota Access. Organizers aren't clear where exactly on Keystone's 1,179-mile long route these camps will appear.
