This is a 30-minute documentary produced by three Bad River Ojibwe teenagers that examines the spiritual, cultural, and environmental impact of a proposed massive open-pit taconite mine at the headwaters of our tribe’s ancient wild rice beds.

Excellent work by these young people in explaining why the open pit mine will be a disaster for the Water, the Earth and their community.

Please watch and share!
