Endangered Species Mural at Standing Rock Supports Tribal Push to Protect Water, Sacred Land From Pipeline

Center for Biological Diversity

CANNON BALL, N.D. - In support of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s campaign to protect their water and sacred grounds from the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Center for Biological Diversity and artist Roger Peet have installed a mural of an endangered butterfly at the Oceti Sakowin camp, where hundreds of tribes and allies have gathered in peaceful protest.

I was hoping to see the mural. At least, here's a source on the butterfly, indeed appropriate as it's now limited to "remnants of native mixed and tallgrass prairie in Minnesota, the Dakotas and southern Canada." It's already extirpated in Iowa and Illinois, the final destinations of the DAPL.
