Dakota Access Protest Marker Post to be Featured in the Smithsonian

October 24, 2017

A 12-foot tall marker post that constructed by protesters during the Dakota Access Pipeline protest will be displayed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.  The marker post was built by protestors to show the distances they had traveled from around the globe, from Fort Buffalo about 50 yards away to Sapmi in the Arctic, some 3,900 miles away.  In 2016, more than 12,000 protestors formed a camp to oppose the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.
