Dakota Access Pipeline Series - NBC News

I have led NBC News' reporting series on the Dakota Access Pipeline, contributing dozens of written articles, video features and live on-the-ground dispatches.

Protests against the pipeline brought about the largest gathering of indigenous nations in modern American history, who with environmental activists have set up camp on land belonging to the Army Corps of Engineers at the confluence of the Cannonball and Missouri rivers in North Dakota.

They have come by the thousands to protest construction of the 1,172-mile Dakota Access oil pipeline, which would run within a half-mile of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation and cross beneath the Missouri River.

Opponents say the pipeline will adversely impact drinking water and disturb sacred tribal sites.
