As many of you already know, Honor the Earth has been leading in the fight against fossil fuel infrastructure in the Great Lakes for the past year – and the fight is intensifying. Enbridge is intent on moving tar sands and fracked Bakken oil through our sacred lands. Indigenous communities have been a leading force of opposition in the region. Because of this, Enbridge is targeting our community specifically in a number of desperate ways – most recently they’ve taken out advertisements in local papers advertising a position for a “Tribal Community Specialist”. They hope this Indian Whisperer can help them to sell their dirty oil transportation plan to our communities – which maintain treaty rights in the region. This twitterstorm is to bring awareness to the dirty and desperate tricks that Big Oil is using in Indian Country.
