Editor’s note: Since August 10, people have been pouring into three prayer camps along the Missouri River to protect the waters from the Dakota Access oil pipeline, whose builders would run the pipeline underneath it. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has spearheaded the fight against the pipeline because it would pass within a half mile of their reservation as it cuts across sacred grounds that are ostensibly protected by treaty. Indian Country Today Media Network contributor Alex Hamer spent some time with the water protectors, who now number in the thousands, and compiled this look at a typical day in the life.
