New links from Yellow Dog Plains

YELLOW DOG PLAINS -- The following are two new links from the Yellow Dog Plains posted after the 3rd Annual Protect the Earth Great Lakes Community Gathering held July 30, 31 and Aug. 1 in Baraga and near Eagle Rock.

New Web site: STOP

After the Protect the Earth walk on Aug. 1, Charlotte Loonsfoot, a Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC) member, returned with family and friends to the Yellow Dog Plains to pray, gather berries, fish and camp in protest of the Kennecott Eagle Mine.

"S.T.O.P. (Stop Toxins and Other Pollutants) is the name of our group passed down from our elders at the Keweenaw Bay Indian Reservation," Loonsfoot explains.

A new Web site, STOP - Stop Toxins and Other Pollutants, brings readers up-to-date on the new camp.

"Music in the Northwoods"

Two songs by E. Halverson of Baraga, singer and musician -- who performed at Protect the Earth -- can be heard on Headwaters News.

Headwaters News writer Gabriel Caplett, who plays back-up guitar, said the songs were recorded on the banks of the Yellow Dog River. Click here to listen to "Music in the Northwoods."
