    Reserve, Wisconsin (LCOTV)

    Some people on the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation northwestern Wisconsin are attempting to live in harmony with the earth again.

    On Friday, February 6, 2009 the tribe is sponsoring it's first annual renewable energy fair at the LCO Ojibwe Community College.

    The planners are attempting to raise a level of awareness to prompt people to make changes in their energy usage to protect our land,water, air, animals and plants. A St. Croix tribal elder will talk about straw/clay homes built in Hertel, Wisconsin. There will also be discussions on wind, solar, bio fuels, green building, and food supply. LCO youth are contributing science projects about energy conservation.

    Denise Johnson, the energy project manager for the LCO Tribe is coordinating the event. There's a free continental breakfast and lunch for a small fee.

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
