Our “Water Wars” video series chronicles the uniting of the Tribes of the Oceti Sakowin to stop the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). In the nineteenth chapter, Standing Rock Chair Janet Alkire gives context on her trip to Washington, D.C. for the White House Tribal Nations Summit. We also share highlights from our press conference with U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon to call for environmental justice and an end to this illegal pipeline.
