"We rode horses from the headwaters of the Mississippi along the proposed route of a new oil pipeline that would cross the reservation. It was the third of a series of rides on oil pipeline routes.
"Those rides took us on the Alberta Clipper proposed expansion route [from Superior, Wisconsin, to the Red Lake Reservation] to the proposed Keystone XL route in the Dakotas, where riders from White Earth Reservation joined with the Lakota to ride between Wanbli and Takini on the Cheyenne River Reservation."
