Description

This investigative reporting project examines the history of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s approval by the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the subsequent protests and controversy that took place after its approval in Cannon Ball, North Dakota at the Standing Rock reservation. The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,172-mile pipeline running through Cannon Ball, North Dakota and crosses land that the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe holds sacred and the Missouri River which is the source of drinking water for thousands of people. The methods used to examine the timeline of the story include the examination of public documents obtained through document searches and Freedom of Information Act requests alongside in-depth interviews with an expert in environmental politics and protestors from the Oceti Sakowin protestor camp at the site of the pipeline’s construction to understand the key issues and circumstances that led to the approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction.
