The Lakhóta and Sioux people are part of a conglomerate of seven Native American Sioux tribes which are indigenous of the Great Plains of North America. To them, the land if sacred, the Earth is our Mother and serving Her is a duty.
And right now, the mainstream media is disturbingly silent about how they fighting a pipeline from being built beneath the Missouri, Mississippi, and Big Sioux rivers that would most certainly pollute the environment, most concerning of all, the water.
The federal government recently decided it would be okay to build the billiondollar Dakota Access Pipeline, which will transport crude oil for 1200 miles from North Dakota to Illinois. Only problem is, one significant spill of this stuff will destroy one of the primary clean water sources in the country, farming land and environment. It's not just idiotic, it is highly unethical. As a result, the Lakhóta and Sioux people are taking a stand.
