Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Chairman Faron Jackson: The Band Opposes Pipelines on Our Reservation

Recently there has been a lot of misinformation surrounding Tribal interests regarding the Line 3 Public Utilities Commission (PUC) process. “Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe” and “Tribal interests” are being used interchangeably to fit different agendas. I would like to set the record straight with our Tribe’s position on the pipeline replacement proposals currently under consideration by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.

Leech Lake Reservation is our homeland. The waters and the food provided by the land are the reason our people are here and how we have sustained ourselves spiritually, culturally and economically. Water ties us together. We cannot move or replace our reservation if there is an oil spill disaster.
