Love water, not oil. A 200 mile ride to honor the earth and protest the Enbridge pipeline.
Published on Sep 5, 2014
Winona LaDuke, Executive Director of the Native American environmental group Honor the Earth, holds a press conference at the Enbridge office in Bemidji, Minnesota following the ‘Love Water Not Oil Tour”, which was set to raise awareness of the proposed ‘Sandpiper’ pipeline, which would jeopardize the pristine lakes area, which house the mother load of wild rice, a food considered sacred to the Native American people.
Spiritual advisor Michael Dahl joins her horse ride to protect mother earth as they ride in a direction flowing against the current of the oil. The press conference ended ten days of partnerships between community groups and lake associations as Winona and the other riders crossed the 200 miles of proposed pipeline. Oil industry expert Shane Davis also joins the tour. His organization, Fractivist, stands in opposition to the Fracking industry in Colorado, which currently has 53,000 active tracking sites. #lovewaternotoil Filmed on August 28th, 2014 by Keri Pickett with GoPro camera by attorney Frank Bibeau.
