Standing Rock Indian Reservation is in Sioux County, North Dakota, U.S.A. Cannonball, N.D is the place of the Spirit Circle where over 100 tribes and 1,000+ supporters have gathered along the Cannonball River to demonstrate against the $3.8 Dakota Access pipeline as the #NoDAPL movement. It is in the Northeastern part of Sioux County where the Cannonball River meets Lake Oahe of the Missouri River.
The pipeline is being challenged by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, represented by the national nonprofit Earthjustice, in a lawsuit against the U.S. government over the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. The lawsuite (FAQ on litigation here) maintains the pipeline would threaten both their water supply and ancestral burial grounds. The pipeline, a project of Energy Transfer Partners , is slated to extend from North Dakota to Illinois, carrying crude oil from the Bakken Shale Play. The Bakken Shale Play is located in Eastern Montana and Western North Dakota, as well as parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba in the Williston Basin.
