Tribal members in eastern South Dakota have gathered to come up with a plan to oppose the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
The members met this week in Rapid City to hear from Vic Camp. He is a grassroots organizer with the group Owe Aku and has been working with tribes in the Midwest and western parts of the country that oppose the pipeline.
Camp says this type of meetings are been held to determine how to fight the pipeline project through either the court or tribal systems.
About 80 people attended the conference, which was organized by the Oglala Sioux Tribe.
The proposed Keystone XL cleared a big hurdle two weeks ago when the State Department raised no major environmental objections to its construction.
