The Primate of the US-based Episcopal Church is supporting people from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation as they protest against the construction of a major oil pipeline through ancient burial grounds and underneath the Missouri River. “A rupture in its infrastructure could wreak untold havoc on the Sioux and catastrophically pollute the Missouri River, a sacred tributary that the Sioux people depend upon for their daily water,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said.
