These Images of the Celebrations at Standing Rock After the Dakota Access Pipeline Permit Denial are Positively Joyful
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced on Sunday that the easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline would be denied, meaning that a segment of the 1,172-mile pipeline will not go through the tribal lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
An Environmental Impact Study will be conducted to find the best possible alternative route — but for now, the tribe's lands are safe.
For the Sioux, the demonstrators who gathered to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and other supporters of the #NoDAPL cause, the news came as a major victory.
We've rounded up some of the best reactions to the news below — check them out.
