The proposed 1,172-mile-long pipeline would transport oil from the North Dakota Bakken region through South Dakota, Iowa and into Illinois.
Native Americans and activists from around the country have been gathering at the camp for several months trying to halt the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Then people will make their individual decisions about what their level of commitment is,” Chase Iron Eyes, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, said by telephone.
The Standing Rock Sioux asked protesters to depart from the site in December as they continued to fight the pipeline in court, but some 300 demonstrators have remained.

The tribe tied this argument to a Lakota prophecy about a “terrible black snake” that someday would destroy the Lakota homeland.
Boasberg also seemed to question the sincerity of the black snake prophecy, an element required to succeed on a Religious Freedom and Restoration Act claim.
There is also an oil pipeline that crosses the Missouri River about 7.5 miles upstream of Lake Oahe.
WASHINGTON (CN) – Oil is just weeks away from coursing through the Dakota Access pipeline after a federal judge refused Tuesday to halt the project over the religious objections of a Native American tribe.
“The record is not clear whether the black snake prophecy was made before or after Lake Oahe was created nearly 60 years ago,” the opinion says.

In its rapid divestment from Wells Fargo, Santa Monica has lost money.
Wells Fargo maintains it cannot break its contract to help finance the pipeline.
