Enbridge Energy's proposed Sandpiper oil pipeline is drawing the ire of yet another group - this time, the National Congress of American Indians is weighing in, and they want the EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers to address not just the environmental impact of the project, but what they see as threats to tribal sovereignty, religious freedoms, and federally protected resources of the region's indigenous peoples.

Don Wedll, the former DNR Commissioner for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe has recieved awards from the EPA for his work on environmental issues and he joins us to talk about what this resolution means.
