Ojibwe band wants say on Sandpiper proceedings


ST. PAUL -- The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe wants a say in the permitting process for the Sandpiper pipeline, which it feels is a threat to its environment and culture.

The band filed a petition Wednesday to intervene in the route permitting for the pipeline, seeking to become an official party to the legal procedure.

"The governments of the United States and Minnesota have an express duty to accord Mille Lacs Band the full status of a sovereign government," the petition said. "No other party to these proceedings can adequately represent the interests of Mille Lacs Band."
