Hundreds of Native Americans and their allies gathered at the Idaho Statehouse Friday for a protest and march against the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
The Seven Fires Council of the Great Sioux Nation has reunited against the pipeline, and Idle No More, a grassroots movement for indigenous sovereignty, organized the Boise event to support the tribes. This effort to prevent the destruction of sacred and culturally significant sites has been called the largest Native American mobilization in almost 150 years.
