Protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline have been raging for months, but tensions have been escalating. Recently, tribal leaders — led by Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault II — called on the Department of Justice to look into what they describe as unnecessary use of force by state and local law enforcement.

The tribe is going up against Energy Transfer Partners, an oil giant intending to build the $3.8 billion pipeline to carry more than a half-million barrels of oil a day through four states and their watersheds. The tribe wants to stop it. Earlier this month, the Standing Rock Sioux lost an appeal, paving the way for the oil giant to build. Protesters have set up camp on the land. Police have been brought in. More than 100 have been arrested.
