Cheers rang out in the capital of North Dakota last Friday when opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline heard that the U.S. government had put a temporary stop to the pipeline's construction. The Native American protesters say the pipeline could threaten the drinking water of thousands of people along the Missouri River. Though the victory is significant, they are preparing for a long standoff at the protest camp on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. It was there we met a hip hop artist who described his attempts to block a bulldozer from digging up the ground.
