Standing up with Standing Rock


Dan Rudy/ Wrangell Sentinel

Organized by the local camp of the Alaska Native Sisterhood, Wrangell residents show solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe at Totem Park early Sunday afternoon. The central North Dakota tribe has been protesting construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline since the spring, citing concerns that the major oil pipeline project would threaten freshwater sources the nearby Standing Rock Reservation relies upon. Last week the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers finally put a hold on the project after rejecting a crucial permit application. Supporters drawn from around the country will remain at the protest's campsite through the winter, as the issue is ongoing.
