Just scanning around the board this morning and found this thread. I had some uncertainty regarding this ND situation so I did a little research to find that there was in excess of 400 meeting with all parties to cover all the concerns before moving forward. I reached out a friend in North Dakota to see if he had any inside knowledge of what was going on. Here was the reply:
The oil company or pipeline company originally offered 10 million to the Indian tribes to cross their land, they said no and wanted 20 million, the oil company then re-routed it to just miss the Indians land and that’s how the small protests started by that reservation, only under the guise of that they were worried about the environment, which had nothing to do with it.
