“The next time when you see a bunch of white boys in polo shirts screaming about taking their country back, and you want to scream, ‘It’s not our country, you stole it from Native Americans, and when they had a peaceful protest at Standing Rock we shot at them with rubber bullets, but we let you chinless turds march through the streets with semi-automatic weapons." - Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live
How do you stand in solidarity? #Charlottesville
Standing Rock proudly stands behind our youth activists for all that they've done. As we look back on the year, we remember the love and healing that camp from Oceti Sakowin Camp. We thank all of you for standing tall besides us. We thank our community and indigenous communities everywhere for showing us how resilient you truly are time after time. #NoDAPL
Standing Rock Sioux Tribe files brief asking for pipeline shutdown during more thorough environmental review.
Today is a monumental victory for us all. The court ruled that the Trump administration indeed overlooked the environmental review. There will be an additional briefing on whether to shut down #DAPL
We are beyond grateful for the court’s ruling, and now more than ever it’s our time for justice. #linkinbio
Every resistance leads with resiliency and passion. Never underestimate the power of prayer, love and compassion. #noDAPL #SiouxStrong

"This is not over. We continue to fight the pipeline in court and await a decision that adequately reflects the rule of law established in this country – one so often flouted by this administration. However, we will never stop fighting for our planet and future generations; this resiliency is part of who we are as a tribe.” -Chairman Dave Archambault II
We are greatly honored to have received the Wallace Global Fund’s Henry A. Wallace Award in recognition of our tenacity to stop the Dakota Access pipeline. We are also thankful to be recipients of Wallace Global Fund's grant, which will support our ongoing efforts to stop #DAPL and will help us transition into a renewable energy filled future.

Today, the Dakota Access Pipeline became fully operational.
This pipeline has had three spills already, and now that it is operational it will have more.
We will not let this deter us from protecting millions of Americans' drinking water. We will not stop until oil stops flowing through our lands. #NeverLoseHope #linkinbio
You can still make an impact!#DivestNow from Wells Fargo and let them know that their involvement in the Dakota Access pipeline is unacceptable.
Happy #EarthDay! We fight for #UnciMaka (Grandmother Earth). We fight to protect our drinking water and our land. This is our natural born right. We will continue to fight for the preservation of Earth, so future generations can thrive.

Today, we applaud BNP Paribas for selling their shares in the loan that funds #dapl.
"The Tribe will continue to pursue divestment, shareholder advocacy and other tactics to show that Energy Transfer Partners’ conduct is unacceptable business practice. The power of people speaking out against the Dakota Access Pipeline is greatly appreciated and today’s announcement by BNP Paribas is proof the fight continues and we look forward to further progress with the investment community, as well as in the courts."

Yesterday we received news that oil is now present in #DAPL, and oil flow is pending. We acknowledge this setback, but will not let it deter us from our ultimate goal. We will continue this battle in court.
We are asking you all to stand with us and voice your concerns about the detrimental effects such projects may have. #linkinbio

A permit has been issued authorizing the construction of Keystone XL pipeline's new route. TransCanada's pipeline will cut through treaty lands of the Great Sioux Nation. We are profoundly disappointed in this decision and will stand in solidarity with the many tribes that the Keystone XL pipeline threatens.
We will continue onward with our battle to see that no pipeline in the future will poison us, our land or our water.

Tomorrow, we are marching because we want the new President and our new Administration to #TakeTheMeeting; meet with Tribal Leaders, and hear our stories. Understand our claim to our lands. Learn about the long history shared between the US Govt, and native peoples. Then, armed with this knowledge, carry forward with the respect due to the Native Nations.
No matter where you are tomorrow: RISE with us.

Today, indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island (North America) will hold a tipi camp near the Washington Monument.
We are excited and proud to be marching for the future of Unci Maka.
** No overnight camping is allowed.**
The march is fast approaching - will you join us this Friday? #linkinbio

This movement has evolved into something bigger than us–bigger than this pipeline. It’s now a global phenomenon, which stresses the need to respect Indigenous Nations. Including their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. So we are now asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to RISE with us. #NativeNationsRise#RiseWithStandingRock#waterislife#nodapl
