September 29, 2017
The Native American official who has been the face and voice of the fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline has been voted out of office.
Unofficial results from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe's general election Wednesday showed that Dave Archambault received only 37 percent of about 1,700 votes cast. His opponent, longtime tribal councilman and wildlife official Mike Faith, received 63 percent, according to the totals released Thursday.
