Rebuilding a sustainable world.

“We are not protesters, we’re protectors”

This Fall Winona LaDuke and folks from Honor the Earth, along with the Horse Spirit Society, Owe Aku and the White Earth Land Recovery Project led a horseback ride from the Headwaters of the Mississippi along the proposed route of a new oil pipeline that would cross the White Earth reservation.

It was the third of a series of rides on oil pipeline routes that took them on the Alberta Clipper proposed expansion route (from Superior, Wisconsin, to the Red Lake Reservation), and to the proposed Keystone XL route in the Dakotas, where riders from White Earth Reservation joined with the Lakota to ride between Wanbli and Takini on the Cheyenne River Reservation.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
