At the fall 2016 OAC business meeting the membership passed a motion asking the Board of Directors to examine matters related to the alleged disturbance of Native American sacred sites and other cultural resources during construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and take appropriate action. The Board undertook considerable discussion of the matter and drafted a letter to the US Army Corps of Engineers, the federal agency in charge of permitting portions of the pipeline under their jurisdiction. The letter was also sent to the Department of the Army, Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
