The fires lit by Standing Rock have spread to Minnesota. This August, a group of indigenous youth fighting the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline will undertake a 250-mile canoe journey across northern Minnesota to stand for the cleanest lakes, the manoomin (wild rice) beds and the 1855 treaty territories of the Ojibwe people.

We will start where the new Line 3 would cross the headwaters of the great Mississippi River, and travel a traditional canoe route to end at Big Sandy Lake, where hundreds of Ojibwe were killed by the US government in 1850.

We paddle for our grandmothers. We paddle for the grandchildren yet to come. We paddle for our rice, for our berries, and for our medicines. We paddle for our relatives who cannot speak for themselves.

Join us at the headwaters of the Mississippi in the Itasca State Park on August 12 to send off the boats with ceremony.

All indigenous youth are invited to join our paddle! We are also seeking supporters to help with events, collect donations, and drive support vehicles!

All funds raised will be used for supplies and trasportation to bring together youth from all over Turtle Island.
