Oil and Water: Conflicts Over the Dakota Access Pipeline

A man walks across the frozen Cannonball River where the phrase, "Mni Wiconi," translating to "Water is life," is engraved in footprint at the Oceti Oyate Camp in Cannon Ball, North Dakota in January 2017.

The US Army Corps of Engineers granted the final easement needed to complete the construction of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline in a court filing on February 7th, 2017. An environmental impact statement that was delaying efforts to grant an easement was also terminated by the Army Corps.
