Over the past years Native Americans had cared for their own sacred lands, the story and religion that their primogenitors had taught them. The Native Americans had still carried the strong belief, that their land shall stay the same as if it should've been until new people had come in from elsewhere to change the land to something we all see outside till this day. However, there is a new project “The Dakota Access Pipeline” that had crossed the line of Native American trust between the new people that had changed everything the Natives had had since their ancestors were still living. No matter what effect the pipeline puts on most people there are some positive causes that can change a person such as protesters to think positive towards the pipeline being built on Indian reservation land. Even if the pipeline can cause many people to have a thought that the pipeline should not be built, only if they can hear from both sides, they can have a second thought and allow the pipeline to be built.The Dakota Access
I think a huge problem in our society is all this talk about the North Dakota Pipeline. In my honest opinion i think it is wrong. There is many people who use the water supply and if something happens with the pipeline it could contaminate the Native Americans water supply. There is many people who count on the water and use it everyday for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. If they go through with the pipeline act it could kill many Native Americans because we need water to survive. Since our bodies need water to survive why would we put Native American live in danger? The government does not give them much the way it is. It seems like they constantly take things that they deserve. This Native American village is the poorest in the world. They
TAPS transports 17% of the United State’s domestic petroleum. If the pipeline were to stop, “A loss of that production would increase prices by at least 10 to 16 percent” (Balan). This is very important, as the majority of the American population is in constant need of these resources. A shift this dramatic in the economy would lead to outrage and possible changes in economic inflation. All in all, the Trans Alaska pipeline has provided for a great number of people and has not failed to let them down.
In my opinion I am against the pipeline. The negative effects out way the positives of the pipeline.To begin with, there isn't a real need for the pipeline, so why spend billions of dollars on a pipeline that isn't needed. The cost of the pipeline is extremely high whereas the pipeline might not actually be worth that much to the residents here. There would be taxes and fees that the residents and the business owners would have to pay to pay for the pipeline that could be avoided. If Washington and Kanes counties could avoid the pipeline all together if they worked harder to conserve water. In my opinion the pipeline is a project that shouldn't be put into action.
“Benefits of Governmental Compromise Regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline” Nations all have unique governments and differences necessary for demonstrating successful leadership. Every country needs different assistance from their leadership, such as Rio requiring infrastructure or Somalia lacking political power. Some governments concern themselves with their politicians’ well-being more so than the people they lead, which creates a relevant problem in America. The United States Government can easily forget about Native American Reservations, or even ignore the people living on them. Recently, the United States Army Corps of Engineers has worked on the Dakota Access Pipeline project, which would cross over Native American ancestral lands,
The Keystone pipeline should not be built because it endangers the environment and has the ability to create catastrophic damages through pollution and habitat desecration. Though many see benefits to the addition of a national pipeline, the effects and dangers must outweigh any slight economic gain. A small gain in government currency should never endanger the future loss of an environment, which is something than can cannot be
As The Assembly of The First Nations Regional Chief for British Columbia, I say that the Enbridge Pipeline is a risk to the environment, the ecosystems, the health and the safety to the First Nations and the citizens of British Columbia. We First Nations have had 21,000 people sign off on the online petition “hold the wall”. The pipeline route will interfere homes of where six First Nations live and their willing to put their lives on hold to fight against the Enbridge Pipeline.
This government in America that people praise and protect everyday, has flaws and people who are corrupt. A recent example would be the Dakota Access Pipeline. Native Americans have been discriminated against since the pilgrims first arrived. Forced to move west due to the white settlers taking over the their territory and kill many who refuse to do what they say, caused the Native Americans to lose their land and dreams. This is similar to what is happening today. The Dakota Access Pipeline is a underground oil pipeline. Part of the pipeline is on Native American territory. To get access to the pipeline, burial grounds of the Natives Americans would have to be annihilated, going against the tradition of Native American culture. In the article,”
The pipeline stretches about 1,100 miles and is about 90 percent complete. At the uncompleted part of the pipe, protestors have been persistent in voicing their opinions on the matter. The main subject of the protest is the land itself; the land is a little ways away from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Presented in a public meeting about the Dakota Access Pipeline, information about soil contamination specific to the area provides proof of destructive pipelines from the past. The land where the unfinished pipeline is part of their ancestor’s homeland and the construction of the pipeline is controversial not only because of the land’s history but also because of previous pipeline spills that caused contamination in the land and soil in May 2015.
The North Dakota Oil rush can be both good and bad for the state. First of all, people are coming in to work for companies to support their families. Since some people don 't make a lot of money, they travel to North Dakota to make the money that is needed. Second of all, the population has boomed since the Oil rush. This can be both good and bad for the state.
Kimberly, One year ago today the North Dakota State Troopers, Morton County Sheriff's Department, and National Guard suited up in riot gear and cleared thousands of water protectors from the Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock. Sovereign native nations have been under attack since before the United States' founding. It is long past the time where we need to recognize these attacks and stand united in helping those who have been hurt so much across the course of history. The Dakota Access Pipeline protests gave me hope that more of us are willing to fight back than ever before.
Thankfully, the protesters achieved success and the president vetoed the building of the pipeline. All of these influential people have fought ridiculously hard for their rights; however, they fought a bloodless revolution with wise, nonviolent actions instead of using ruthless violence. Ultimately, there are many past leaders in history that
You even hear in the news that protest go on because companies want their land to build buildings or pass a pipeline through their land as well. Through careful consideration the Native Americans have never backdown from protecting their people and land.
Controversy Surrounding the Keystone XL Pipeline To build or not to build, this choice will impact the relationship between the US and Canada and determine the level of dependence the US will have on countries that are not so friendly. “TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL Pipeline would transport oil sands crude from Canada and shale oil produced in North Dakota and Montana to a market hub in Nebraska for delivery to Gulf Coast refineries. The pipeline would consist of 875 miles of 36-inch pipe with the capacity to transport 830,000 barrels per day” (Parfomak, Pirog, Luther and Vann 4). The construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline would strengthen the United States economy, provide energy security and have minimal environmental impact. “The Keystone XL project would create $1.1 trillion in private capital investment at no
