Honor the Earth Video: Triple Crown of Pipeline Rides

"We are not protesters, we're protectors," said internationally acclaimed author, orator and activist Winona LaDuke.

"We rode horses from the headwaters of the Mississippi along the proposed route of a new oil pipeline that would cross the reservation. It was the third of a series of rides on oil pipeline routes.

"Those rides took us on the Alberta Clipper proposed expansion route [from Superior, Wisconsin, to the Red Lake Reservation] to the proposed Keystone XL route in the Dakotas, where riders from White Earth Reservation joined with the Lakota to ride between Wanbli and Takini on the Cheyenne River Reservation."

The rides were sponsored by Honor the Earth, along with the Horse Spirit Society, Owe Aku and the White Earth Land Recovery Project.

Watch this video of the Triple Crown of Pipeline Rides and listen to the words of Winona LaDuke.
