Resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline Part of Larger Struggle to Protect Indigenous Rights

Posted Oct. 5, 2016

MP3 Interview with Mary Katherine Nagle, attorney and playwright, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

dapl

The Obama administration placed a temporary hold on further construction of the controversial Dakota Access pipeline on Sept. 9. Thousands of indigenous opponents of the pipeline and their allies have established a protest encampment in North Dakota in order to stop the pipeline from crossing the Missouri River, which they maintain threatens sacred burial sites, and the only source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. But the company building the project, Energy Transfer Partners, has continued its preparation work on the project despite the Obama administration's request for a voluntary halt on both sides of the river.

On Sept. 27, an indigenous attorney working on native issues spoke at Yale University about the fight to stop the Dakota Access pipeline and what it means for the Sioux and the broader fight for indigenous rights and sovereignty. Mary Kathryn Nagle is a member of the Cherokee Nation and a partner with the Pipestem Law firm, which is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the sovereign rights of tribal governments. She is also a nationally acclaimed playwright of indigenous-themed plays who has served as the executive director of Yale's Indigenous Performing Arts Program. Nagle began her talk at Yale with a quote from the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

Mary Kathryn Nagle was a member of the Civilians' Research and Development Group in 2013-2014, where she wrote her latest play, "Fairly Traceable." Her other plays include: "In My Father's Eyes", sliverofafullmoon.org

Mary Kathryn Nagle's Play: "Sliver of a Full Moon" was recently presented as a staged reading at Yale Law School: Livestreaming Sliver of a Full Moon by Cherokee playwright Mary Kathryn Nagle—Sun, Sept. 21. and Livestreaming Sliver of a Full Moon — A Play About Justice for Native Women, Yale Law School, March 31
