Images of pure joy as people celebrate at Standing Rock


A sense of victory swept through the camp of #NoDAPL protesters late Sunday and Monday.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it wouldn’t grant an easement needed to finish the the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.

While the jubilation might be short-lived with President-elect Donald Trump waiting in the wings, for now, the mood at the camps in North Dakota is festive.
