US govt again seeks to halt pipeline opposed by Native Americans

Flags of Native American tribes from across the US and Canada line the entrance to a encampment near Cannon Ball, North Dakota in protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in September 2016The US government reiterated its request that construction of an oil pipeline in North Dakota be paused, while authorities consider the impacts of its route on a Native American tribe. The Dakota Access Pipeline has been the subject of a months-long protest, in which Native Americans and their supporters have camped out in the state’s prairie lands to block the pipeline’s route underneath the Missouri River and the adjoining man-made Lake Oahe. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe says the project threatens its drinking water source, and could destroy ancient sacred sites near the tribe’s reservation, which is less than a mile from the pipeline.
