WATER PROTECTOR'S - Spotted Horse Roasted Coffee
Our "Water Protector's" Spotted Horse coffee blend by Winona LaDuke is fair trade and organic coffee roasted here on the White Earth Reservation in NW Minnesota. Beans are specially selected and blended from El Salvador, Chiapas and Costa Rican. Beans are farmed and produced by women.
We have always been water protectors. Once you could drink all of the water here, but the folly of the Wiindigo Economy has changed that. We continue to protect our water- from mining, logging and nowthe Enbridge pipelines and proposed mines . Over the past four years we have joined with other Indigenous allies and local citizens to oppose the extreme mining extractions in our region and the extreme pipeline proposals- whether Enbridge, with new lines proposed for our wild rice territory, or Trans Canada and the Keystone Pipeline; we continue our resistance.
