Indian Country 52 #33 – Love Water not Oil
“Winona LaDuke, executive director of Native environmental group Honor the Earth, launched the “Love Water Not Oil” horse ride this week to draw attention to the group’s continued opposition to the Enbridge Sandpiper pipeline. It would carry fracked oil from North Dakota’s Bakken shale oil fields through the Sandy Lake and Rice Lake watersheds in northern Minnesota. The area is not only rich in recreational fishing facilities but it is also home to vast fields of wild rice or manoomim, a Native American staple.”

“Winona LaDuke is circulating through the crowd gathered at Clyde’s Iron Works event center in Duluth, Minn., and spreading the message. Get over to the table and comment on the Canadian company, Enbridge, and plans to build, expand and replace four oil pipelines in northern Minnesota. While national media is focused on the Keystone XL pipeline debate, Enbridge has quietly proposed four pipeline projects through the North Country. If all are permitted, 4 million barrels a day will be swishing over and under and around Minnesota’s still pristine lakes and rivers. Where is it going? To refineries in Superior, Wisc. ”
