    The PolyMet copper-nickel mine, Minnesota’s first sulfide mine is pushing for permits by the end of this year. Come to the Fond du Lac Reservation on Wednesday, November 14th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to hear from WaterLegacy board member Matt Tyler and Fond du Lac Elder and Pipe Carrier Ricky DeFoe about the ecosystems and tribal Treaty resources that are in jeopardy. Learn how you can get involved in protecting the life-giving waters that feed Lake Superior.

    Matt and Ricky both canoed to the proposed PolyMet site and will share the short film of their journey. We will have snacks, dialogue, and a specific action you can take to support the Fond du Lac Band in their work to protect water quality on the Reservation, downstream of the proposed PolyMet project.

    Concert at 7:00pm.
    In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre
    1500 E Lake St, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55407

    Tickets $15 online and at the door.

    Come out for a beautiful evening of music and community to fuel the fight against Line 3! Co-hosted by MN350: Building a Climate Movement in Minnesota and Honor the Earth, this concert will feature the music of Annie Humphrey Music and Keith Secola Band, with local opener Freaque. Learn about how we are fighting Line 3 and how the resistance to Line 3 is growing.

    Line 3 is a proposed tar sands oil pipeline that would cut through Minnesota, causing irreparable harm to our waters. The pipeline route also encroaches on treaty-protected territory where the Ojibwe retain the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wild rice, thus breaking these treaties. Finally, the pipeline would increase our dependence on oil, hitting the accelerator on global warming.

    Indigenous communities, landowners, water protectors, environmentalists, and thousands of other Minnesotans have been resisting this pipeline for years.

    The fight continues, and we need your help. Learn about how to become involved at https://www.stopline3.org.

    ANNIE HUMPHREY is a singer/songwriter who won the 2018 Native American Music Awards' Native Artist of the Year. She grew up on the Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota.

    KEITH SECOLA is an icon and ambassador of Native music. He is one of the most influential artists in the field today. Rising from the grassroots of North America, he is a songwriter of the people, and was inducted into the Native Music Hall of Fame in 2011.
