In an act of solidarity between farmers, ranchers, and tribes, the Cowboy and Indian Alliance demonstration protested the Keystone XL pipeline and championed environmental protections, specifically focusing on the at-risk Ogallala Aquifer. On April 22, 2014, the Alliance kicked off its week-long demonstration by riding horseback along the National Mall, and raising teepees and erecting a camp in front of the US Capitol Building. Approximately 5,000 attendees participated in the activities.
