South Dakota tribes join together to protest Keystone pipeline

Posted: Updated:

For years, South Dakota's Native American tribes have been vocal in their opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.

The pipeline's proposed route would run through South Dakota, west of the Missouri River.

Now, tribal resistance is taking physical form. A camp has been erected in rural Tripp County, near the town of Witten.

It's purpose is to act as a gathering place and bring a face to the fight.

"This is an historic event," camp organizer Gary Dorr told us. "We're having all seven council fires here today, united, which hasn't happened for over 100 years."

Watch KSFY News tonight at 10 to see the camp and hear what outcome organizers are hoping for.
