BISMARCK, N.D. -- There were reports Tuesday night the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe told protesters to go home.

Even though the Army Corps of Engineers said this weekend it would not issue a permit for construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the tribe's land, many protesters said they intend to stay until they're sure it would not be built there.

The chairman put out a statement thanking protesters, but said they need to leave because they're risking lives.

There have been celebrations from demonstrators after the news the pipeline would not pass near the Sioux Reservation.
