Protests are ongoing against a controversial oil pipeline project in North Dakota and a Native American artist says the Pacific should take note to prevent similar projects from occurring elsewhere.

The $US3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) will run 1870km through Iowa, Illinois, and North and South Dakota to transport domestically produced light sweet crude oil to major refining markets.

compiled by Samoa News staff

Disney’s animated movie “Moana” debuted to critical acclaim and box office success over the Thanksgiving weekend, but some people in the South Pacific dislike how it depicts their culture, Associated Press reported this week.
