BISMARCK, N.D. - The Associated Press reported American Indians from around the
country are gathering in Washington for four days of protest against the
Trump administration and the Dakota Access pipeline that will culminate
with a Friday march on the White House.
Starting Tuesday, tribal members and supporters plan to camp each day
on the National Mall, with teepees, a ceremonial fire, cultural
workshops, and speakers.
On Friday, a 2-mile march is planned to the White House, where a rally is scheduled.
Sioux tribes oppose the $3.8 billion pipeline to move North Dakota
oil to Illinois. Texas-based developer Energy Transfer Partners expects
to have oil flowing this month, after getting the green light for final
construction from the Trump administration last month. Sioux tribes are
fighting the project in court.
