In an afternoon rally of remembering treaties between tribes and the United States government, defending the sacred and honoring the legacy of Indigenous women leaders, a group of about 200 stood for water and against the Enbridge Line 3 replacement project.
Around 2,000 water protectors, Indigenous leaders and activists gathered on County Road 9 in Clearwater County, about 20 miles southwest of Bemidji, to protest construction of the Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline on June 7, 2021. After marching for nearly two miles from their staging area to the Mississippi River, indigenous leaders spoke to the crowd and demanded political leaders hear their voices over environmental, and other, concerns about continued construction of Enbridge's pipeline.
Several of the protesters locked themselves together, wearing “sleeping dragon” devices, attaching themselves to one another -- many lying on the ground in sleeping bags for warmth, while others were also locked to the fences outside of the entrances. The Minnesota State Patrol used saws to cut through the devices, which appeared to be made with reinforced metal bars.
Many of the protestors traveled from the northeast “to act in solidarity with Anishinaabe peoples here in Minnesota,” according to a news release.
