Statement from group:

"To The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe:

On the behalf of the Coalition of Woodland Nations we write this letter of support for the Standing Rock Sioux in opposition of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Several of our people have been there in North Dakota at your side, and more are on the way. We are currently preparing to face similar issues here in the East with the proposal of the Atlantic Coast pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux and their fellow protectors have provided a great example of what is needed on the East Coast and have been a great inspiration to us, and to other Natives all over the country. We stand with Standing Rock! No DAPL, No ACP!

Maniína eika, water is life!
