A Tribe Says The Government's Approval Of The Dakota Access Pipeline Violates Religious Freedom

 


WASHINGTON — With completion of the Dakota Access pipeline quickly drawing near, an American Indian tribe argued in court on Tuesday that a judge should halt construction because the pipeline would spiritually contaminate water used for sacred rituals.

This religious freedom argument represents a final push by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe to stop the pipeline. Construction has moved at a fast pace since the US Army Corps of Engineers earlier this month granted an easement that allows the private company building the pipeline to go through federal land.
