SD Tribal Official Hails Keystone XL Decision

SD Tribal Official Hails Keystone XL Decision
ROSEBUD, SD - Tribal officials in South Dakota are coming out in support of President Barack Obama's decision to temporarily halt the planned Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Rosebud Sioux Tribe President Rodney Bordeaux has spoken against the $7 billion pipeline before, saying he fears damage to cultural sites and water resources. He calls Obama's move "a tremendous victory for tribal nations."

Obama said there wasn't enough time for a fair review of the project. His move blocks the pipeline but doesn't necessarily kill it.

Bordeaux says "we have won a battle but the war has yet to be won."

Last fall, pipeline opponents including actress Daryl Hannah rode horses and bicycles and walked from the Pine Ridge reservation to the Rosebud reservation to protest the project.
