MARQUETTE -- "A Sacred Fire is Burning at Eagle Rock," an article by Cynthia Pryor, Sulfide Mining Campaign director for the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve, was published on Friday, May 7, 2010, on the Huffington Post.

Pryor recounts how her arrest by Rio Tinto on public land led to the present occupation of Eagle Rock, a sacred site of the Anishinaabe (Ojibwa) people and the proposed portal for the "Eagle" Project sulfide mine.
