The Tribes of the Oceti Sakowin are united to stop the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). Today, DAPL threatens Standing Rock’s sole source of fresh drinking water, transporting more than a million barrels of oil per day under Mni Sose, the sacred Missouri River — all without a valid permit. Meanwhile, to legally sweat in certain places on our sacred river’s edge, we’re required to have … a permit. The contrast couldn’t be more clear, and that’s why we must stay strong and keep fighting. Mni wiconi — water is life.
