  • Leech Lake, Prepare for Invasion - Tar Sands Oil and All of Us

    by Nellis Kennedy and Winona LaDuke
    Special to News From Indian Country

    Keep your children close, your inhalers in hand and don’t forget to stock up on drinking water, as a new pipeline is proposed for northern Minnesota. A set of corporations has offered $10 million to the Leech Lake tribe in exchange for a 20-year lease of tribal lands.

    The proposed Enbridge Alberta Clipper pipeline is one of the most controversial in history, with immense environmental and economic impacts. Leech Lake band and the rest of northern Minnesota would do well to stop the pipeline, joining with thousands of Canadians, Indigenous peoples, and indeed a host of shareholders, who think this project is a sham, as well as an environmental and ethical disaster.
