One woman’s quest to keep crude oil pipelines out of her Ojibwe communities’ sacred wild rice beds. Environmentalist Winona LaDuke would like to just spend time with her family, grow corn and put up solar panels. But when a new pipeline route threatens her sacred wild rice and Lake Superior, she springs into action defending clean water with treaties, slow food and spiritual horse rides.
