MULTIPLE NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES UNITE TO PROTEST THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE

It looks and sounds to me like white entitlement to has not changed much over the last few hundred years.

And the tactics used on against Standing Rock Sioux on September 3 2016 look hauntingly familiar
[As All Things Considered reported,  
hundreds of Native Americans from tribes across the country have set up a camp near the construction site in North Dakota. The Army Corps of Engineer approved the oil pipeline in July allowing it to run under the Missouri river close to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's reservation.

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe is worried that the pipeline will negatively impact water quality on its reservation and imperil cultural heritage sites, says The Dallas Morning News. The Sioux City Journal said the Standing Rock tribe “is fighting the installation of the pipeline on their reservation bordering North and South Dakota.”
The protests have turned ugly with videos and photos circulating on social media of dogs [and mace] being used against protesters on September 3; protesters said there were multiple injuries and ["that construction crews destroyed American Indian burial and cultural sites on private land,” said The Associated Press."
