Denying Access: NoDAPL to NoNAPL is a gripping 90-minute documentary chronicling the Water Protectors at Standing Rock and Seneca Territory working to oppose the Dakota Access and Northern Access Pipelines. This Indigenous-led movement brought together people from around the world in an unprecedented call for the recognition of Indigenous rights and an end to a destructive fossil fuel industry. Senecas went in large numbers to "stand with Standing Rock” against DAPL and came home to find another pipeline, NAPL, being planned just upstream from their territories.
