RAPID CITY, S.D.(KOTA)- NDN Collective, a Rapid City-based indigenous advocacy organization, has published a 204-page report titled “Faulty Infrastructure and the Impacts of the Dakota Access Pipeline,” or DAPL.
The contents of the report, which the group has described as “first-of-its-kind”, run the gambit from pipeline technicalities, safety and spill risks, claims violations of the National Environmental Policy Act, and urges readers to bear in mind tribal treaty rights.
This report represents a years’ worth of work for the organization. Jade Begay, NDN Collective climate justice campaign director, takes us inside the process.
Begay explained the contents of the report, and who would benefit most from reading.
In light of the report’s findings, Begay took the temperature of the activist community.
Begay said accessibility was a priority for this report.
