Call to Action Update Against Dakota Access Pipeline
August 22, 2016:
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has received notice from 87 Tribal Nations who have officially taken action to support our opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline. Below are the current lists of those tribes who have sent us signed resolutions and letters of support. We are aware that there are more tribes who may have taken action who we are not aware of yet, and also tribes who have indicated that they will do so. To get your tribes Letter of Support or Resolution to SRST, please email an electronic copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail copies to contact info below. In one week we have garnered support from nearly 1/6th of the tribal nations in the U.S. We will continue to update this list as we move forward and hope that more tribe’s and organizations join our efforts. We welcome non-indigenous support as well. Standing Rock cannot express the gratitude we have for the overwhelming support from both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples here in the United States and globally. We are forever grateful.
