INDIANAPOLIS -- People in Indianapolis and across the country protested on Tuesday against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The march downtown started at the Eiteljorg Museum with a prayer, then hit the streets, and ended back at the museum.

The Dakota Access Pipeline would deliver oil from North Dakota, through South Dakota and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois.

It is to run beneath a Missouri River reservoir in North Dakota that provides drinking water to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which says the pipeline threatens drinking water and cultural sites.

The protestors want President Obama to permanently halt construction of the $3.8 billion pipeline.
