Honor the Earth's  third annual "Love Water, Not Oil" tour continues across Northern Minnesota, a journey by horse and canoe along the proposed new Sandpiper/Line 3 oil pipeline corridor.

Honor the Earth is a Native-led environmental organization formed in 1993 by activist and environmentalist Winona LaDuke of White Earth  and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers.

The tour comes at a time when many Native communities are not only questioning the pipeline proposals, but challenging the state's rights to regulate ricing and fishing in defiance of the 1855 Treaty.

"The process is not working.  We need a process that works." - Winona LaDuke
