Treaty People Gathering Defends Sacred Land and Waters in Minnesota

At the Treaty People Gathering I had the opportunity to be in ceremony with indigenous water protectors. I stood in solidarity with them to affirm their treaty rights, and to call for ceasing construction of the disastrous Line 3 tar sands pipeline through the sacred land and water of Minnesota – see and for info.

My friends Lisa Swartz and Batya Kagan were on radio KSQD describing some of our experiences – you can find it now by scrolling down to the 5pm Talk of the Bay show on this page. Michael Levy and I were also on KSQD just before we left. The four of us will share stories of our Treaty People Gathering experiences at a live event in Santa Cruz, California on June 21st.
