Resurgence of Native Protests in the US

For decades, and indeed for centuries, the Native people of the US have had little say in what has happened to their land and traditions. Famous protests in the past have not ended well, but that has not stopped protestors in three different states from resisting two new attempts to use important Native land for other economic and scientific purposes. In the Dakotas, the protests are gaining national attention for the opposition to the building of oil pipelines. In Hawaii, the protests are still relatively small, but potentially look more likely to succeed. These are protests worth thinking about and following, as these issues have been around for centuries and yet rarely see the light of day.
