The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe is preparing its own Environmental Impact Statement for the Line 3 pipeline. The Minnesota Chippewa Tribe is a federally recognized tribal government comprised of 6 Ojibwe/Chippewa Bands (Bois Forte, Fond du Lac, Grand Portage, Leech Lake, Mille Lacs, and White Earth) and their more than 42,000 members.
A tribal EIS is a very rare thing in the context of big infrastructure projects. This is a bold and courageous assertion of self-determination. The tribes are unified but need your support as they stand up to protect their landbase and the resources critical to the survival of the Anishinaabeg.
Donate here to directly support the development of the tribal EIS. You can also send a check to Honor the Earth, PO Box 63, Callaway MN 56521, and add "Tribal EIS" in the memo line.
