Press Release

350.org on Nebraska Farmer Repatriating Land to Ponca Tribe in Keystone XL’s Path

WASHINGTON -

A Nebraska farmer repatriated a plot of land to the Ponca Tribe on Saturday directly in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline. This creates another potential hurdle for the pipeline company, TransCanada. 350.org Executive Director May Boeve gave the following statement in response:

“Repatriating this land to the Ponca Tribe raises new challenges for the Keystone XL pipeline and respects the leadership of Native nations in the fight against the fossil fuel industry. Tribal sovereignty is central to the movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground and build a more just society for all. While TransCanada is trampling on Indigenous rights to fatten their bottom line, Native leaders are resisting by building renewable energy solutions like solar panels in the path of the pipeline. The Ponca Tribe has a rightful say in the fate of this pipeline, and we will continue to stand with them in the fight to stop Keystone XL for good.”
