Sen. Barrasso: Hold Indian Affairs hearing NOW on Dakota Access Pipeline

The International Indigenous Youth Council and Oceti Sakowin Youth “Demands that the Senate committee on Indian Affairs immediately commence hearings to investigate pipeline construction in relation to the National Historic Act of 1966 and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of November 16, 1990.” Clearly, the fact that the Department of Justice, the Department of Interior, and the Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia have temporarily halted construction on federal land demonstrates the need for legitimate oversight and environmental and cultural review. It is the responsibility of the Senate committee on Indian Affairs to hold a hearing on the entire pipeline construction project on both private and federal lands, evaluated as a whole, to determine if it is consistent with treaty rights, health and welfare of, and opportunities for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, and other affected tribes.
