Tribal concerns about Keystone XL

September 18, 2012

The Washington Post reports at significant length about tribal concerns along the Keystone XL route.  Similar concerns were raised, and dismissed with little action, when the Keystone I pipeline was built.  In most cases, the land where the pipeline will be built isn’t currently owned by the tribes, but is part of ancestral homelands that include sacred sites and burial grounds.  The tribes want to catalog sites that may be affected and prevent disruption to places with historical, archeological, or spiritual significance.
