Last year, the ND courts ruled in favor of Enbridge in a lawsuit against the Botsford family that attempts to condemn their land and force the Sandpiper pipeline on it. The ND judge ruled that Enbridge (a Canadian corporation) could use eminent domain powers to do that. On January 15, 2016, the Botsfords appealed the case to the ND Supreme Court. They feel that eminent domain should be reserved for things that serve the public, not foreign profits. They feel they have a right to say no, we dont want our farmland to be poisoned. We agree.Read more

Support Honor the Earth on "Give to the Max Day"!
Today, Minnesotans are stepping up and opening their hearts to support the movements and organizations that mean the most to them. Please consider supporting Honor the Earth and our efforts to protect all the sacred land, water, and life on Mother Earth. We are living in a time of crisis but we are resilient and powerful. Together we are leading a graceful transition to a just, green, restorative future.
As you make your giving choices today, please keep in mind that nationally, less than 1% of foundation money goes to Native American groups, and a small fraction of that amount goes to reservation-based work. We rely on your contributions to do our work fighting for social and ecological justice in Native communities. Please, join us, and give to the MAX!Read more
In one of the biggest victories ever for the environmental movement, on Friday November 6, President Barack Obama announced that he has rejected the application from Canadian company TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL pipeline. This is a historic victory for our Mother Earth and a huge step in the transition to a just future based on renewable energy. It shows what is possible when we come together across the lines that divide us, and form a powerful diverse grassroots movement. Congratulations and many thanks to the countless people who have been fighting this battle for the last 7-8 years!!! It has been an honor to stand with you. Read more.Read more
We are honored that our Anishinaabekwe Tara Houska (Zhaabowekwe) was one of the leaders of a federal initiative to keep fossil fuels in the ground. On Wednesday, November 4, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Jeff Merkley, and national grassroots environmental leaders held a rally and press conference to unveil major new legislation to combat climate change and keep fossil fuels in the ground on public lands. This legislation would, for the first time, aggressively tackle the impact of oil, gas and coal extraction on federal public lands on climate change.
We are extremely grateful for Tara's courage in speaking the truth about the disproportionate impact these fossil fuel projects have on indigenous communities, and the need to protect our Mother Earth and future generations. Chi-miigwech, Tara. Read more...Read more

Immediate Release Honor the Earth: Pipeline Free Breast Campaign Introduced for Breast Cancer Awareness
Honor the Earth is introducing the Pipeline-free Breast Campaign as a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Noting, “Fossil Fuels are bad for your boobs. Chemicals created and used during petroleum extraction, refining, and use; benzene, toluene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and a few other bad guys are known carcinogens.” The organization points to last year’s controversy over a corporate “ pink-washing” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as one reason it was important to inform the public of health risks. “Baker Hughes, who makes drill bits for the fracking industry introduced some pink drill bits for breast cancer awareness month, and donated some $l00,000 for the second year in a row to Susan G. Komen, the best-funded breast cancer organization in the U.S. In return, apparently Baker Hughes got to use the specific shade of pink Susan G. Komen has trademarked.” Read moreRead more
