Word from North Dakota Governor - So, 2016 isn't all horror and chaos. There has been much controversy in the past several months over the unethical choice to build an oil pipeline through Lake Oahe, a burial site for the Standing Rock Sioux. There were also concerns the pipeline would harm the drinking water nearby and damage other sites of significance to the Sioux Nation. Many came out of the woodwork to show their support to the people protesting, from US military veterans to the various peoples of the world. This controversy was made even more unusual by the major news media's silence up until now on the argument. The below quote may have had something to do with the story gaining media attention. So, small win for the little man? Just a short solution to a bigger problem? Can we not have something to be happy about with 2016 coming to an end? Discuss.
