We always knew this, the Native Nations had done their homework and knew their rights. Many are now just as educated in the white man's schools and institutions so the days of "pulling one over" are gone. Also with social media the dirty deeds and tricks of how Native people and their allies are treated was there for the world to see.

“This is a major victory for the Tribe and we commend the courts for upholding the law and doing the right thing,” said Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II in a recent statement. “The previous administration painstakingly considered the impacts of this pipeline, and President Trump hastily dismissed these careful environmental considerations in favor of political and personal interests.
We applaud the courts for protecting our laws and regulations from undue political influence and will ask the Court to shut down pipeline operations immediately.”

Indeed - SHUT IT DOWN!

They're saying it will probably require many months to do the necessary assessment -
Fingers crossed that the Judge calls for shutting off the flow during this assessment
=> Then, based on the findings - total shut down of the line!

Great News X 2
A Wyoming mayor’s decision to remove portraits of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence from the town hall and replace them with a picture of a Native American chief, Chief Washakie , has some community members up in arms.
Mayor Pete Muldoon of Jackson, Wyoming, directed town staff members to make the swap on June 5, saying there is no requirement to have a picture of the president displayed in the building.

“When the Town Of Jackson decides to honor such a divisive person, it is taking sides against some of its residents,” Muldoon said in the statement. “The Town Council has made no such decision, and until and unless it does, that kind of honor will not be bestowed.”
The Republican Party, called the move “totally disrespectful,” and said portraits of U.S. presidents have hung in the town hall since at least the 1980s.

“We aren’t required to display signs of respect ― our respect is earned, not demanded,” Mayor Pete Muldoon said.
