STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX –  The members of Arizona's Indigenous Peoples Caucus issued this joint statement of support for those protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline both in Washington, D.C. and in Arizona.

"We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who are bravely opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline. There are members of American Indian nations from all over the country who have joined together at the U.S. Capitol for four days of protests. Tomorrow they will march on the White House. Ensuring our voices are heard is critical to protecting our values, our lands and our traditions. We commend those who are doing that work in Washington, as well as those who are working so hard to bring the same attention to these issues here in Arizona. This fight is not over and we must remain united."
