A new front in the battle against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline is opening up for American Indian tribes and others in south-central South Dakota.
A group sanctioned by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe is setting up a prayer camp near Mission to keep up pressure against TransCanada's pipeline that would move 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Canada to Texas' Gulf Coast refineries. It also would move 100,000 barrels of domestic oil daily from North Dakota's Bakken region.
Aldo Seoane is the coordinator for the Shielding the People Project. He says the part of the pipeline's path cuts through an area that contains tribal artifacts.
Seoane says the tribe was not consulted by the project's backers.
