Joseph Standing Bear Schranz speaks about the heroic efforts of the Standing Rock Sioux to stop an oil pipeline with the potential of poisoning their water supply as well as parts of the Missouri River. Through peaceful protests they have halted the construction of 1,100 miles of pipeline destined for an Illinois river port. Support from far and wide has swelled their numbers, and despite a forceful push back they have persisted in holding their ground.
