Finally, Native American Tribes Most Affected By DAPL Weigh In -- April 1, 2021

From The Williston Herald:

Native American tribes have been the driving force behind efforts to shut down the Dakota Access pipeline, but now a Native American tribe has come forward in support of continuing its operation.

Chairman Mark Fox of the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation has sent a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers asking for single-tribe consultation on continuity of operations for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In the letter, Fox notes that half of the oil produced on the MHA’s reservation is taken to market through Dakota Access.

“We seek immediate consultation on the alternatives being considered by the Corps regarding continuity of operations of the Dakota Access Pipeline or alternative delivery systems while any NEPA-related or other federal review of DAPL is conducted,” Fox wrote.


  1. Wondered when they weigh in. With all they have invested in FBIR one would have thought they would have been more vocal already

    1. Having followed "these guys" for decades, this doesn't surprise me a bit.
