Making a Difference

Currently, there is a very heated protest between the Native Americans in North Dakota and the United States Government.

The plans to construct a pipeline that crosses directly through the Native’s reservation boiled anger throughout America. According to the article written by Sandy Tolan, the government violated the Dakota and Lakota’s 1851 treaty.

 

This case had been taken up to the Supreme Court, however, the Native still lost. Now the people have to resort to peaceful protest.

I really despise how the government is blatantly ignoring the treaty that they issued to people of the United States for turn in profit. However it is delightful to think that the Natives and the people of the community are able to band together for such a worthy cause. This unites the Native America community and many participants across the United States as they fight to make a difference.
