Tribes fight oil pipeline in northern Minnesota

Author:

Saying the environmental damage to their native brothers' land in Canada is too great, tribal dissidents on two Minnesota Indian reservations are battling a major new oil pipeline across northern Minnesota. Members of both the Fond du Lac and Leech Lake bands of Ojibwe are starting a petition drive for tribal referendums on whether Enbridge Energy Corp. should be allowed to build an oil pipeline across both reservations. They also are threatening legal action within tribal courts.
