The Dakota Access Pipeline is being built to carry oil from the Dakotas to markets in the Midwest and Gulf Coast. 

But a segment as yet unbuilt would cross ancestral lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.  And protestors have flocked from across the country to stand with the tribe against the pipeline. 

Rogue Valley resident and Red Earth Descendants founder Dan Wahpepah has already traveled to the protest site with supplies.  Charly Otterrobe lives here now but is from Standing Rock. 

They bring their views and stories to the studio.
