Your name Professor’s name Course name Date of submission Standing Rock Reservation Conflict with Dakota Access Pipeline Since 2014, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has raised controversies about the development of the Dakota Access Pipeline. After an investment of about $3.7 billion, the project was to be completed in 2016. The Dakota Access Pipeline is expected to adhere to safety requirements as per the state and the federal government. Unfortunately, it continues to be a national problem in America with different tribes opposing the project on various grounds. The Dakota Access Pipeline is responsible for separating American citizens due to different opinions about the project. Additionally, it has contributed to America's downfall both socially and economically. The conflict has been triggered by Native Americans and other groups in the country (Amatulli, “How You Can Help the Standing Rock Sioux Fight the Dakota Access Pipeline”). After a verdict received from Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA), the Sioux and other tribes began protesting against the project. They did not want to undergo any risks associated with pipe leakages accrued from the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Sioux argued against the logicality of taking a chance with these pipes after having experienced over 3000 unfortunate oil leaks before. Apart from the project’s interference with the Sioux’s water supply, the tribe also bases their opposition on consecrated grounds. The Native American group blames the law for incompetence as a result of the latter’s failure to follow requisite procedure (Mclaughlin, “Tribe Prepares to Keep up Pipeline Protest
