Out of spotlight, tribes keep fighting Dakota pipeline


August 3, 2018

(Reuters) - Native American tribes that tried to block the Dakota Access oil pipeline during a months-long standoff with authorities in North Dakota more than a year ago are carrying on their fight in federal court, in what they contend is a symbol of their ongoing struggle for tribal sovereignty.

"People think Standing Rock has come and gone," said Danielle Ta'Sheena Finn, a spokeswoman for the Standing Rock Sioux, referring to the sight of the protests. "But we will continue this fight until we are heard and the world knows what happened to us."
