Honor the Earth

Honor the Earth's  third annual "Love Water, Not Oil" tour continues across Northern Minnesota, a journey by horse and canoe along the proposed new Sandpiper/Line 3 oil pipeline corridor.

Honor the Earth is a Native-led environmental organization formed in 1993 by activist and environmentalist Winona LaDuke of White Earth  and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers.

The tour comes at a time when many Native communities are not only questioning the pipeline proposals, but challenging the state's rights to regulate ricing and fishing in defiance of the 1855 Treaty.

Members of Minnesota's Chippewa tribes have served notice to the state that they plan to begin harvesting wild rice this week on all public waters, lakes and rivers within the territory ceded by the 1855 Chippewa Treaty with the federal government. They plan a major wild-rice harvesting event Thursday on Hole-in-the-Day Lake near Nisswa.
