Fireworks filled the night sky above Oceti Sakowin Camp as activists celebrated after learning an easement had been denied for the Dakota Access Pipeline near the edge of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation on December 4, 2016 outside Cannon Ball, North Dakota. The US Army Corps of Engineers announced Sunday that it will not grant an easement to the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe on the Sioux Tribes Standing Rock reservation, ending a months-long standoff. Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II released a Statement on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decision to not grant easement.
