The Standing Rock Sioux’s tribal council has voted to make tribal land available for those protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline, though an organizer from another tribe says many likely won’t move.
Standing Rock chairman Dave Archambault II says the tribal council voted 8-5 Tuesday to use reservation land so that permanent structures can be built to protect protesters from winter weather.
But protest organizer Cody Hall, who is part of the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe in South Dakota, said Wednesday that the offer has come too late because many of the several hundred protesters are hunkered down on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers property near where the four-state pipeline is being built.
The tribal land made available is about two miles south of the current camp.
