Enbridge is going to need to do some accounting for us all. When Enbridge announced the cancellation of the proposed Sandpiper pipeline, after a four year battle in Minnesota, they bought a 28% interest in the ill fated Dakota Access pipeline.

Winona LaDuke and Honor The Earth bring you a regional discussion about pipeline projects in Anishinaaabe Akiing and HoChunk territories specifically and the great Great Lakes in general.

My name is Cody Looking horse, I am Haudenosaunee and Lakota, Sioux and my mother is Dawn Martin-Hill and she is Mohawk Professor at McMaster University. My mom was the first native woman in Canada to get her PhD in cultural anthropology.

The summer of 2017 may be instrumental in activities designed to force Enbridge to agree to remove and clean up Line #3 in Minnesota before they are granted a permit to replace the line, either in the existing easement, or a new one proposed that would travel through several wild rice lakes.

In addition, Enbridge faces issues with Line #5 across the Bad River Ojibwe Reservation and a renewal of easements on Line #61, while at the same time, increasing the companies easement from 85 to 200 feet in order to accommodate the Twine Line #66 proposal. Here is some information on upcoming events surrounding the July 2017 pipeline awareness events in Wisconsin. Promo Video of up-coming events below:

 Standing Rock is an unpredicted history lesson for all of us. More than any moment I recall since Wounded Knee, the Vietnam War, or the time of Martin Luther King, this moment stands as a crossroads in the battle for social justice. It is also an economic issue, in a time of economic system transformation, and profoundly a question of the future of this land. The world is watching.
