The Dakota Access  Pipeline standoff  could be coming to a head.

The chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said in  a statement , "Our Tribe is deeply disappointed in this decision by the United States, but our resolve to protect our water is stronger than ever." Members of the tribe are concerned the $3.8 billion pipeline project could leak oil into their water supply.

They also say the project is desecrating some of their sacred lands.

The standoff between protesters and authorities has grown more confrontational as of late, with some protesters reporting they've been hit with nonlethal bullets, tear gas and water hoses while temperatures were below freezing.
