We invite our Anishinaabeg and local communities to come together to learn about and make comment on the Anishinaabeg Cumulative Impact Assessment (ACIA). This document was developed as a working model for environmental analysis on behalf of the five Anishinaabe bands of Red Lake, White Earth, Fond du Lac, Leech Lake, and Mille Lacs who are intervening in the state approval process for the Line 3 Replacement project. The ACIA is meant to be a resource, meant to provide the foundational example for assessing and responding to impacts from proposed large infrastructure projects which may affect Anishinaabe tribal resources and communities on and off reservations.
The ACIA is, first and foremost, Anishinaabe-centric with an emphasis on the Anishinaabe worldview and value system which the state of Minnesota simply could not successfully integrate into their Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The ACIA strives to more comprehensively address impacts to tribal resources and environmental justice. It will altogether more thoroughly and fairly consider the impacts to all the people, the lands, the waters, the plants and animals, and our collective future.
The ACIA is available for review on the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe website at www.MNChippewaTribe.org as well as at www.honorearth.org, and hard copies will be made available for review at tribal offices. Comments can be submitted to ACIAComments@mnchippewatribe.org.
