The Magic of Parching. It is Manoominike Giizis, the Wild Rice Making Moon. For thousands of years, Native people have gone to these lakes, listened to the sounds of rice hens, geese, cranes, and swans fly overhead as we pole and knock through thousands of acres of manoomin. Manoomin or wild rice also feeds the bodies and spirits.
This region is the only place in the world where wild rice grows. Zizania Aquatica is endemic, from this place, and the wild rice ecosystem of Northern Minnesota, Ontario, Manitoba, Wisconsin and Michigan. The Anishinaabe call this the wondrous grain.
In Pine Point, on the White Earth Reservation, we are hosting lacrosse games for our children, installing solar panels on public housing, and painting beautiful murals. We are excited to announce we have launched our new screen printing operation at Pine Point.
Art, culture, and clean energy. A new future. We develop new projects and ideas every day while staying focused on what is most sacred to us; our water and the wild rice we are harvesting right now.
All we want is to live the good life the Creator gave us.

Honor the Earth with Owe Aku are working from the Standing Rock reservation to challenge the Dakota Access pipeline. We have been involved in the opposition to the pipeline for the past few months, with our support for the Red Warrior Camp and the Sacred Stone Camp. The situation is moving very quickly out there; and needs urgent attention. While thousands of people are on site at Standing Rock to oppose the pipeline; the North Dakota governor has called this a state of emergency. This may allow for significantly more law enforcement and possibly the National Guard.
Honor the Earth is committed to working with the people of the Standing Rock Reservation to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline. We are supporting our relatives at the Red Warrior Camp (direct action camp) where we have put our Honor the Earth tipi at the camp as a stance of our support with our team as well supporting Sacred Stone Camp. Over the course of the past days, we have been there... with legal counsel, media, and hard working Anishinaabe people to say that we do not want the Enbridge Sandpiper in our territory nor do we want the Dakota Access pipeline. We are "Protectors NOT Protesters"
