Some 250 American Indians, with more on their way, are protesting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline that will extend from North Dakota to Chicago. Friday is the third day of the protests and arrests. Two American Indians were arrested this morning.

By late morning some 30 police cruisers from local, county and state law enforcement agencies were on site where the protests are taking place. The protest is taking place one-mile from the Standing Rock Reservation.

Tribal citizens from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have had a spirit camp where the Cannonball and Missouri meet.
