Native Americans rally against DAPL during White House Tribal Nations Conference

On the 26th of September, Obama met with tribal leaders at the White House Tribal Nations Conference. Outside, Native Americans and allies rallied around the demand that the US Army Corps of Engineers and other parts of the Executive Branch block and reject the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).Presumably the DAPL and other pipelines that threaten Indigenous health and survival were near tne top of the agenda given current events in Standing Rock, N Dakota.

Speakers at the Defending the Sacred Rally against the DAPL included Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II, President of the National Congress of American Indians Brian Cladoosby, Standing Rock Youth Representative Grace Claymore, Dallas Goldtooth with the Indigenous Environmental Network, and many others.
