On April 1st, 2016, tribal citizens of the Standing Rock Lakota Nation and ally Lakota, Nakota, & Dakota citizens, under the group name “Chante tin’sa kinanzi Po” founded a Spirit Camp along the proposed route of the bakken oil pipeline, Dakota Access.
This Spirit Camp is called Iŋyaŋ Wakháŋagapi Othí, translated as Sacred Rock, the original name of the Cannon Ball, ND area (Cannon Ball is located in Sioux County, North Dakota and on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation). The Spirit Camp is dedicated to stopping and raising awareness around the Dakota Access pipeline, including the dangers associated with pipeline spills and the necessity to protect the water resources of the Missouri river.
The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is proposed to transport as much as 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota crossing the Missouri River twice, through Standing Rock reserve lands and sacred sites, on to South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.
The pipeline route threatens sites of historical and cultural significance to many Northern Plains tribes, including the Lakota, Dakota, Mandan, Arikara and Cheyenne, and has violated a series of Federal Regulations sought to protect the environment and Native American tribes.
