"Behind Dakota Pipeline Protest: Native American Religious Revival"

"The protests are about water, fossil fuels, and questions of tribal sovereignty. But beneath all that, tribes from across the US say they're unifying around revitalized Indian traditions and religion."

"Cannon Ball, N.D. — With night falling over the sprawling town of tents and teepees here, BJ Kidder describes Sitting Bull massing his forces in this very same spot, at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers, before the Battle of Little Big Horn.

This time, thousands of Native Americans haven't come to wage war. They have come to protest through prayer.

And six years ago, Mr. Kidder believes, his father predicted it."
