The Dakota Access Pipeline expansion and the protests against it have garnered local, national and world-wide attention since summer. In this segment of Area Voices, host Katie Carter talks with professor and author Anton Treuer who's written several books, one of which is titled Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask. Katie asked Dr. Treuer about the Dakota Access Pipeline project and asked him about its impact on the Native community and much more. Their conversation will be broken into segments.
