Tribes representing tens of thousands of indigenous people in the U.S. and Canada will be signing a declaration against the planned Keystone XL oil pipeline.

The 16-page declaration highlights the tribes’ treaty rights and their opposition to the proposed $8 billion pipeline that would move Canadian crude south to Nebraska.

There is an existing Keystone pipeline in Nebraska, and is a part of a network that would take the oil to Texas Gulf Coast refineries.
