First, I would like to send a prayer to the Standing Rock tribe and surrounding areas for the strength to fight and protect sacred land and water.

Former President Barack Obama had blocked the project from continuing late in his second term, though Tuesday, President Donald Trump revived the pipeline.

Trump's order asks the army to consider "whether to withdraw" the environmental review, despite the fact it is already under way, with a public comment period that closes on 20 February. We will be taking legal action, and take this fight head on. At that time, many believed this was a victory for the Standing Rock Sioux nation.

They're Googling everything on their phones, and that remains both a challenge and an opportunity for Google the company. That doesn't even come close to the 45.5 million iPhones Apple sold last quarter , but it's a very good first effort.

"This disregard for tribal diplomatic relations and the potential for national repercussions is utterly alarming", Archambault wrote, noting that the protests against the pipeline have garnered widespread support.

The tribe also feared the pipeline could contaminate its water supply under the Missouri River and has protested-along with others in objection to the project-at the construction site. After months-long demonstrations, regulators denied an easement for the oil pipeline in December.

"Today, Trump announced an executive order on DAPL - which not only violates the law, but it violates tribal treaties". Jack Gerard, its chief executive, said Trump's orders would "benefit American consumers and workers, while protecting the environment".
