Next steps for Tribe and allies:
- The Tribe will challenge any easement decision on the grounds that the EIS was
wrongfully terminated. The Tribe will demand a fair, accurate and lawful environmental impact statement to identify true risks to its treaty rights, including its water supply and sacred places.
- The Tribe has asked the court for DAPL to disclose its oil spill and risk assessment
records for full transparency and review by the public.
- If DAPL is successful in constructing and operating the pipeline, the Tribe will seek to
shut the pipeline operations down.
- A Native Nations march on Washington is scheduled for March 10. The Standing Rock
Sioux Tribe and tribes across the country invite allies in America and from around the
world to join the march.
