American Indians, many of them from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, have been protesting the 1,170 mile pipeline since April, claiming that it poses possible environmental threats to the Missouri River and could destroy sacred sites and ancestral lands that lie outside reservations. In the past few months, the profile of the protests has risen to a national level, and several celebrities have added their voices to the anti-pipeline chorus. Some, like Mark Ruffalo and Susan Sarandon, have rallied and spoken in protest, and Shailene Woodley was arrested earlier this month for taking part in a peaceful protest action.
