Indigenous Frames for Understanding Extraction, Mines, and Pipelines

April 26, 2018

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center, Freshwater Lab, Native American Support Program

When communities reject extractive projects that risk their health and way of life, who listens and what can we do? This question hangs over the dangerous Back Forty Mine, an open-pit sulfide mine, located on the banks of the Menominee River which feeds Green Bay and is a major tributary of Lake Michigan.

Join us for an interactive conversation with Burton W. Warrington, indigenous rights activist & attorney. He will discuss how Indigenous Nations and local communities have joined together to protect our drinking water and respect the source of life.
