Tickets and Times 

Water is life. We are the people who live by the water. Pray by these waters. Travel  by the waters. Eat and drink from these waters. We are related to those who live in the  water,” explains Winona LaDuke, founder and Executive Director of Honor the Earth. “To poison the waters with Line 3 is to show disrespect for creation. To honor and  protect the waters is our responsibility as people of the land.”  - Winona LaDuke
