Dakota Pipeline - USA

Mail Art against the Dakota Access Pipeline

Governor Jack Dalrymple, 600 East Boulevard Ave, Bismarck, ND 58505-0100

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been locked in a legal battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from impacting it’s cultural, water, and natural resources. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The Army Corps of Engineers green-lighted several sections of the process without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, various environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The current proposed pipeline route crosses under Lake Oahe, just a half mile up from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
We believe that the Dakota Access Pipeline has great potential to leak into the Missouri River and cause harm to the great people of this nation whose water and livelihood depends on the river. In Dakota/Lakota it is said: “mni Wiconi.” - Water is life. Native American people know that water is the first medicine for all life on this earth.

The proposed Dakota Access Pipeline would transport 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day, across four states. Oil companies keep telling us that this is perfectly safe, but we’ve learned that that’s a lie: from 2012-2013 alone, there were 300 oil pipeline breaks in the state of North Dakota.

Please make mail art in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

You can send it to
North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple,

and tell him to stop the pipeline. You can also send mail art to the White House:
