The First Nations people protesting the Dakota pipeline are not only fighting for clean water, they are fighting for all of us.  A clean environment is a human right.  Clean water is a necessity.  After all that has been done to them, our Native people still stand for all of us.  They are facing down pepper spray and attav dogs so we can all have a healthy future.  Most white people would never think to do that, because we are taught to strive to own a piece of the Earth.  We are taught that the land is property, but that is wrong.  The land belongs to all of us.
