On Sunday afternoon, reports began to trickle in that the Army Corps of Engineers has denied a permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue construction.

The Army Corps of Engineers has denied the easement needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline, according Colonel Henderson, who first notified Veterans for Standing Rock co-organizer Michael A. Wood Jr.

The secretary of the Army Corps of Engineers has told Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Archambault that the current route for the Dakota Access pipeline will be denied.

The 1,172-mile pipeline is nearly complete except for a small section beneath a Missouri River reservoir near the encampment, which is about 50 miles south of Bismarck.

Archambault cheered the decision in a statement Sunday.

"I am thankful there were some leaders in the federal government that realized something was not right even though its legal," he said. "For the first time in history native American, they heard our voices. This is something that will go down in history and is a blessing for all indigenous people.

I heard the army corp of engineers will not grant the easement and they will reroute.
