Listen Neil Young’s New Song, ‘Indian Givers’
Neil Young protests ‘Dakota access pipeline’ with new song and video, ‘Indian Givers’.
Neil Young, a longtime environmentalist and supporter of Native American rights, has released a song and a video called ‘Indian Givers’ about the controversy surrounding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Young sides with members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, whose reservation is located on the border between North and South Dakota. They believe that the construction of the pipeline, which is expected to run from North Dakota to Southern Illinois, could negatively impact the Missouri River, which is their water source.
Young has previously protested against the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline in 2014. Young and Willie Nelson also staged a concert that same year lobbying against Keystone.
