LN3:

7 TEACHINGS OF THE ANISHINAABE RESISTANCE

We, the Pacific NW Council of Water Protectors, are calling out for your support.

Our goal: is to help organize a Portland-to-Minnesota caravan of water protectors and supplies by March 2021 to support Indigenous opposition to the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline.

If the pipeline is completed, Line 3 will move one million barrels of tar sands oil daily, the emissions equivalent of 50 new coal-fired plants.

Mining the oil destroys pristine forests in Canada and 

laying the pipe through Minnesota endangers Anishinaabe and other tribal wetlands and rice fields protected by the treaties that would once again be broken.

With 22 river crossings, there will be a great, on-going risk of spills and leakages.

In 2016, we organized a caravan of 30 vehicles that brought water protectors and supplies to Standing Rock.

We will use whatever funds come our way for one purpose:

moving water protectors to Minnesota, keeping them fed, COVID-19 safe, and strong. We are determined to non-violent advocates for the water, Mother Earth, and tribal sovereignty.

Our funding goal: $8,000.

ABOUT OUR ELDERS 

As a Native American culture, we have always looked to our spiritual elders who have been guided and directed by our ancestors and who can teach us of the ancient prophecies. some of the many messages have always been about things like: leaving a place better than you found it, exchanging a fair value when you take something; respecting  honoring and loving mother earth and all living things, and that there are times to be quiet and times to take action.

 OUR VISION

We envision a regional Medicine Gathering of indigenous and non-indigenous supporters to continue protection of our sacred waters and to teach self-sufficiency for our families. Participants will honor the spiritual protocols which guide the camp.

SERVICES

We are a small non-profit group of people who work hard at developing strategies on how to best raise awareness and resources needed to support water protectors who actively continue to be a voice for mother earth.
