11/6/16 EXPLAINED: Dakota Access Pipeline IS ON Treaty Land - Peter Caposella - Atty, Federal Indian Law - TYT Politics 19:42 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMRLUctyFrk&app=desktop 2/2/17 US claim of domination over standing rock violates treaty of 1851 - Peter d'Errico - important legal arguments: Standing Rock should never agree with the idea that the Black Hills are "under federal ownership," nor should they accept the U.S. assertion that it cannot return lands it has invaded and claimed for its own. The time has come to stand up against the centuries-long violation of Indigenous Peoples' lands by any government claiming the "right" of "discovery." In 1958, Standing Rock lawyers did not challenge the U.S. claim. As the judge said, "the authority of Congress…is not questioned." Standing Rock should not make that mistake again! https://www.academia.edu/31335005/The_U.S._Claim_of_Domination_Over_Standing_Rock_Violates_the_Treaty_of_1851

11/17/16 Felony charge due for DAPL willfully disturbing burial ground? - Tyler Vega "Under North Dakota state law (23-06-27), any corporation or person who willfully “disturbs” a “human burial site” for “monetary gain” is guilty of a Class B felony (maximum penalty of 10 years' imprisonment, a fine of $20,000). A “human burial site” includes any site designated by “a grave marker or other burial structure” (such as a rock cairn), or if it is believed to exist “on the basis of archaeological or historical evidence” (such as the filing by the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer filed the day before the construction activity.)" https://www.facebook.com/tymvega/posts/10154739540099695
12/4/16 GAMECHANGER?***Very Important to share to everyone. Watch and know this.*** In 1958, Public Law 85-915 was passed by the U.S. Congress, compensating the Standing Rock Sioux for tribal land flooded ten years prior to form Lake Oahe. Rights to all minerals below the lake were reserved for the tribe. Because of this no corporate or government entity has a right to dig beneath the lake without permission of the tribe and is breaking the law in attempting it. The Army Corps jurisdiction is in the operation of the reservoir. This is a modern piece of legislation and re-affirmed in 1992, and referred to again in a stipulated settlement in 2012. - Lee Sprague https://www.facebook.com/lee.sprague.35/posts/10155043658024101 12/4/16 New legal key to ending sr legal dispute - bruce bagnoli 47::24 Two Northern California attorneys, Larry Bragman and Ford Greene, report on a visit to the Water Protectors' protest camp, describing their finding that the Standing Rock Sioux tribe legally owns all mineral rights to the land beneath Lake Oahe.

"DAPL Secret Documents: The U.S. "Trustee" is not Trustworthy," by Peter d'Errico, Attorney on Indigenous People's Rights bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2017/02/american-indian-genocide-museum-coyote.html?m=1 Note - this blog also refers to some info on "North Dakota Lake Oahe Crossing Spill Model Discussion." It is the job of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers to determine the safe operating life of a pipeline. The spill risk model for corrosion would be illustrated on a chart such as this: (see blog) ... It shows the corrosion rates of different types of pipe in millimeters per year under a particular condition. It shows 304 stainless steel pipe being the best.
