Gov. Doug Burgum saids it appears between 25 and 50 people are left at the Oceti Sakowin protest camp on the Cannonball River.
At its peak, an estimated 10,000 people were at the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp.
Wednesday (2-22-17) was the deadline for protestors to vacate. Burgum told reporters from his perspective, that process went rather smoothly.
"I think the message got out," Burgum said. "Lots and lots of people left the camp voluntarily."
