Charlotte Loonsfoot: Camping out to protect Eagle Rock

Produced by Nick Vander Puy
Reserve, Wisconsin (www.IndianCountryTV.com)  

When Charlotte Loonsfoot and her family were coming back to Eagle Rock the other day from Baraga, Michigan, along a long and bumpy road, their small car broke down.  Al Hunter and I picked them up on the road and brought them into camp. 

Loonsfoot didn't complain at all.  She was smiling and proudly carrying a brand new blue and green Pendleton wool blanket.

 

She'd received this blanket from a Keweenaw Bay Chippewa elder earlier in the week for helping start the camp at Eagle Rock (Migiziwasin) to protect a sacred site.

She wants Rio Tinto Zinc mining company to leave Ojibwe ceded territory.

"We're not going to allow the company (RTZ) to fence this beautiful place."
