Since April 2016, thousands of people, led by Standing Rock Sioux Tribal members, gathered at camps to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL)creating the #NoDAPL movement. The movement blocked pipeline construction, though under a new US presidential administration, many are waiting to see what steps will need to be taken to continue resistance. What is its significance for Indigenous peoples and environmentalism, including the global climate justice and environmental justice movements?
