This summer we are riding our horses against the current of the oil on the 5th Annual Love Water Not Oil tour.

This time around, we are starting in Wisconsin, and riding against the current of Enbridge's Line 61 and the site of a potential new pipeline, Line 66, which would receive the oil proposed to flow through Enbridge's new Line 3. We are fighting this every step of the way, and this month, we fight with our horses and our prayers. 

We are honored to be joined by riders from Standing Rock, Pine Ridge, Crow Creek, and Sisseton Reservations, including many from the Dakota 38 Bigfoot Ride, along with our Ojibwe and Ho Chunk relatives in Wisconsin.  Several amazing artists are offering their music, including Nahko Bear, Annie Humphrey, Gingger Shankar, Corey Medina, and Maria Isa, with special guests along the way.

Join us July 14th on Madeline Island and July 16th at Bayfront Festival in Duluth MN.  

The Minnesota ride will be from late July to early August, with a celebratory Sioux Chef feast on July 30th in Baxter, MN, and a concert in Bemidji on August 10th.
