NEW TOWN, N.D. – The Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation joined other tribes Monday in expressing support for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Chairman Mark Fox said in the letter of support that the Three Affiliated Tribes support Standing Rock’s opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing the Missouri River just north of the reservation boundary.
“We support SRST’s concern for potential risk to its nation’s land and water, and share the firm belief that DAPL should find an alternative means and method of transporting oil to market that has less potential for negative impact to Standing Rock and the lands that we have historically shared with our fellow nation, friends and relatives,” Fox said in a statement.
The Dakota Access Pipeline crosses fee land owned by the Three Affiliated Tribes.
