WICHITA, Kan. A group from Wichita is headed to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota to support people protesting the construction of an oil pipeline.
Protesters have been standing against a 1,200-mile pipeline being built to carry oil from North Dakota to Illinois. Protesters say the pipeline threatens their drinking water on the nearby Standing Rock Indian Reservation.
David Vance and his wife are taking the more-than 730-mile trip from Wichita to deliver food, blankets, tents and clothing to people continuing to protest as temperatures drop.
Vance says he's been planning the trip for about a week and in that time, he's collected a truckload of supplies from the Wichita community.
