Standing Rock, North Dakota //  On assignment for NPR.  Since April 2016, protesters have camped at the construction site of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, adjacent to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. In early November, winter arrived in full, dumping almost 2 feet of snow on the encampment within a few days. The winter storm hit just before news that President-elect  Donald Trump indicated  he supports completion of the pipeline.  The two-day blizzard drove out some of the more fair-weather protesters, but many began gearing up for the long haul, with plans to stay through the harsh Dakota winter.
