Happy Indigenous Peoples' Day

From Charles Pierce:


The pipeline is operating now without a clear permit. Also, it is being sued by wild rice.

Also, a novel “rights of nature” lawsuit is pending in the White Earth tribal court. It names Manoomin — the Ojibwe word for wild rice — as one of the plaintiffs. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has asked a federal appeals court to block that case. “We are confident that the (tribal) court will hold that the rights of wild rice should supersede the rights of the Canadian multinational … And we will ask the federal government to uphold the decisions that are made in our court,” [Winona] LaDuke told reporters.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day than having a native crop sue a greedy multinational invader.
