New drone footage shot over the Thanksgiving holiday shows the continued clashes between protesters and police at Standing Rock.
Protesters comprised of Native Americans, environmentalists and their supporters have set up camp for the past few months in an effort to shut down the construction of a Dakota Access oil pipeline near Standing Rock Sioux Tribe lands.
There have been several incidents of fairly violent confrontation between protesters and law enforcement officials, and allegations of police brutality continue to spread.
Drones have become a way to document the protest, deemed #NoDAPL.

Morton County Sheriff’s Department officials did not immediately respond to Mashable’s request for comment.
