Protecting Water In Standing Rock And New Mexico

New Mexico in Focus: Standing Rock

February 10, 2017 - The Cheyenne River Sioux and Standing Rock Sioux tribes have vowed to continue to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline in court. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approved a final easement for the project earlier this week.

New Mexico filmmaker Tony Estrada was at the Oceti Sakowin, Rosebud Sioux, Hunkpapa Sioux and Sacred Stone camps from November through December, and spoke with some water protectors who came from New Mexico to support opposition to the project. This week we hear what they said about the connections between what's happening at Standing Rock and environmental concerns back home.
