PERPIGNAN, France — Larry Towell watched as the remains of the main protest campsite at Standing Rock, N.D., burned around him in February. The structures, many of them considered sacred by the Native Americans who began the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline, had been set on fire so the authorities preparing to enter the encampment would not be the people who destroyed them.
