The Standing Rock Indian Reservation (Lakota: Íŋyaŋ Woslál Háŋ) is located in North Dakota and South Dakota in the United States, and is inhabited by ethnic Hunkpapa LakotaSihasapa Lakota and Yanktonai Dakota. The sixth-largest Native American reservation in land area in the US, Standing Rock includes all of Sioux County, North Dakota, and all of Corson County, South Dakota, plus slivers of northern Dewey and Ziebach counties in South Dakota, along their northern county lines at Highway 20. The reservation has a land area of 9,251.2 square kilometers (3,571.9 sq mi) and a population of 8,217 as of the 2010 census.[3] There are 15,568 enrolled members of the tribe.[2] The largest communities on the reservation are Fort YatesCannon Ball and McLaughlin. Numerous pipelines have been constructed in the Dakotas, including under waterways. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), a project to be built through four states, was rerouted near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation after a proposed route near the state capital Bismarck was denied due to it being deemed too risky for water supplies, in addition to it requiring an additional eleven mile extension of the pipeline. The tribe opposed the pipeline to be constructed under Lake Oahe and the Missouri River. In the summer of 2016, a group of young activists from Standing Rock ran from North Dakota to Washington, D.C., to present a petition in protest of the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is part of the Bakken pipeline. They launched an international campaign called ReZpect our Water. The activists argue that the pipeline, which goes from North Dakota to Illinois, would jeopardize the water source of the reservation, the Missouri River. he 2016 Democratic and Republican presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump made no comments during the campaign regarding the DAPL. 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein protested at the site, including spray painting equipment; charges of criminal trespass and criminal mischief were made against both her and her running mate Ajamu BarakaUS Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, a 2016 Democratic presidential primary candidate, has been critical of DAPL. A variety of Hollywood celebrities have also supported the protests. The battle of Standing Rock militarized against Americans on domestic soil over foreign oil American would never see a dime of. The inciting riots, riot plants, corruption was thick. It ran deep. DAPL would stop at nothing to meet that deadline for the investors, including theft, fraud, assault, alleged kidnapping, fraudulent arrests, even human harm that could have possibly led to death.
