These Are the Faces Of The People Fighting Against The North Dakota Pipeline

There has been an undeniable showdown between the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the company building the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline. What began as a legal battle has now turned into a movement, with thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country travelling to the central North Dakota reservation to camp in a nearby meadow. They are there to show solidarity with a tribe who believes they are, once again, getting a raw deal at the hands of commercial interests and the U.S. government.

“You think no one is going to help,” said Frank White Bull, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council. “But the people have shown us they’re here to help us. We made our stance, and the Indian Nation heard us. It’s making us whole. It’s making us wanyi oyate — one nation. We’re not alone.”
Dave Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council, is simply baffled by the fact that his tribe is even in this situation to begin with.
“How do you eliminate a race?” he wondered. “That’s what the government has been trying to do for 200 years. But we’re still here. We have maintained our culture. We’ve maintained our way of life. We’ve maintained our dignity. We’re still here.”
Guy Jones of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe sees the events as a true awakening for Native Americans, and humanity as a whole. He, along with his family and the plethora of others from tribes across the country, remain camped at the reservation, protesting the pipeline that is supposed to cover 1,100 miles, with some of it running close to his tribe’s ancestral land.
The pipeline could desecrate their ancestral burial grounds and also contaminate the Missouri River, their only water supply. These issues were presented in detail in a lawsuit the tribe filed in July, claiming they were never consulted.

Last Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice ordered a pause of construction near the site as a means for addressing some of the issues. This rebuked a decision made minutes beforehand from a federal judge in the suit who had denied the tribe an injunction.
Of the event, Jones claimed he had never seen a greater assembly of Native Americans than in the week leading up to the decision. People at the camp cheered loudly, and many of them claimed they would continue protesting through the winter. They said they’d do whatever it takes to ensure their land stays safe.

Liz McKenzie is Diné (Navajo) from New Mexico who packed up a trailer full of supplies to donate to the tribe, and drove out. “Our voice has been heard and people are finally noticing us,” she began, “not as beings of the past, not as costumes you buy in a Halloween store.”



 

 

“We have been fighting this fight for generations,” said Seeyouma Na Hash-Chid, who rode his motorcycle out from Arizona to support the protest.



Standing Rock Tribal Chairman David Archambault II believes the legal fight could go on for months to come.
