Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II said the activists behind the now-dismantled Last Child Camp had undermined the movement against the pipeline by disregarding the tribe's repeated pleas to leave the protest camps.
Authorities arrested 74 protesters after they set up teepees Wednesday on land owned by the pipeline developer.
There are a couple of updates from the Dakota Access Pipeline protests to keep an eye on this week. Lawyers for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe were not immediately reached on Thursday morning.
Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners, the company buiding the pipeline, has been unable to proceed without the easement after the Obama administration ordered the process stalled pending a full study on the project's effect and environmental impact.
Hoeven issued a statement Tuesday after he says Acting Army Secretary Robert Speer informed him of the decision. "We appreciate that President Trump is keeping his word to move lawful, carefully sited energy projects forward". Army Corps of Engineers could soon issue an easement needed to finish the controversial pipeline, after President Donald Trump signed a memorandum aimed at advancing the $3.8 billion project.
The easement will allow the project to cross beneath the Missouri River.
Delegates for North Dakota have generally supported completion of the project, seen by industry leaders as critical infrastructure for the Bakken's future. John Hoeven said in a statement Tuesday.
Toyota sold 10.2 million vehicles in 2016 while Volkswagen sold 10.3 million
The company downplayed their fall from the top spot by saying: "At Toyota , we are focused on chasing volume". Rival Volkswagen AG sold 10.3 million, riding strong sales in China-its second-largest market after Europe.
Dump trucks and work crews moved into the campsite Monday to clean up the abandoned cars, structures, trash and waste left by thousands of protesters who converged on the region to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline over concerns it would contaminate drinking water relied upon by American Indians.
The group said that Hoeven was "prematurely championing Trump directives to grant an easement for illegal construction".
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said late Tuesday it will "vigorously" pursue legal action to ensure the environmental review is followed.
"We stand ready to fight this battle against corporate interest superseding government procedure and the health and wellbeing of millions of Americans".
The 11 documents at issue discuss the amount of oil that would flow out if the pipeline ruptured in various places, according to court papers filed Wednesday evening by Dakota Access LLC.
696 arrests have been made at the camp since August.
The tribe is trying to steer protesters to a March 10 event called the Rise with Standing Rock Native Nations March on Washington. Rep. Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, praised Trump's decision, calling the president a "man of action".
