A United Nations group representing indigenous people around the world says the U.S. government is ignoring the treaty and human rights of American Indians. It came after a forum member spent three days at a camp in North Dakota, that’s drawn hundreds of protesters. People are protesting the 3.8 billion dollar, 12-hundred-mile pipeline, that will carry North Dakota oil to Illinois. Nearly 470 protesters have been arrested supporting the Standing Rock Sioux, which believes the pipeline threatens cultural sites and drinking water. The UN forum member said he found a “war zone” atmosphere surrounding the protests. President Barack Obama said his administration is monitoring the situation.
