Major US lender Wells Fargo bank asked to meet with tribal leaders from the Standing Rock reservation on the same day that one of its buildings was occupied by Dakota Access Pipeline protesters.

Wells Fargo, which has lent $3.7 billion to finance the crude oil pipeline being built by Energy Transfer Partners, has been the subject of a series of protests this year. Native Indian groups say the project threatens the safety of their water supplies in North Dakota.
