After months of protesting against the Dakota Access Pipeline, members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and their supporters (including more than 300 other tribes) can finally breathe a sigh of long-awaited relief. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced yesterday they will seek an alternate route for the pipeline, which invades Native Americans' soil and could destroy their water supply.

Musicians, actors and activists and celebrated the #NoDAPL victory on social media. Kehlani tweeted, "My sister just called my from standing rock and said 'twin I think we did it' I'm crying in the middle of apple bees," while Chance the Rapper stated, "The people that defended Standing Rock are American Heroes. God bless you."

Fellow protestor Shailene Woodley also shared this tongue-in-cheek tweet: "soooo how many #NoDAPL babies you think are going to be made tonight?!" The actress was arrested in October for criminal trespassing. See more celebrity reactions to the Dakota Access Pipeline decision below:
