Marty Cobenais knows personally what's at stake if the delegation's message doesn't get through. A member of the Red Lake Band of the Chippewa (Ojibwe), Cobenais grew up in a community in Northern Minnesota that's crisscrossed by pipelines. One sprung a leak years ago, but Cobenais says a large amount of the oil was never properly cleaned up and remains in the ground.
"I don't want to see that happen anywhere else," he said.
"We don't need this pipeline," Cobenais said.
