Several South Dakota groups opposed to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline have combined forces.
A coalition called No KXL Dakota includes Protect the Sacred Movement of the Ihanktonwan/Yankton, the Bridger Spiritual Camp, the Lower Brule Spiritual Camp, the Rosebud Spiritual Camp, Dakota Rural Action, and the Indigenous Environmental Network.
Dakota Rural Action spokesman Paul Seamans says he believes the pipeline will hurt the environment and his group has formed alliances with several organizations to oppose the project.
The coalition plans to visit several communities around the state and will kick off its efforts Friday with an event below the Fort Randall Dam.
The proposed TransCanada pipeline would travel through Montana and South Dakota before reaching Nebraska.
Supporters of the pipeline say it will solve infrastructure problems and create jobs.
