Marty Curry: Come now, Brothers and Sisters

Produced by Nick Vander Puy
LaPointe, Wisconsin (

During the nineteen eighties and nineties re-affirmed Ojibwe treaty rights and tribal sovereignty prevented Exxon and other multi-national companies from mining Ojibwe ceded territory in northern Wisconsin and laying waste to the air, land, and water.

The treaty rights in Wisconsin were used to protect the Earth. Which is something many are thinking about now as the British Petroleum (BP) oil rig spills more crude into the Gulf of Mexico.

As Ojibwe tribal members in Minnesota today (May 14, 2010) plan to get arrested  to uplift treaty rights, Marty Curry, walking a pristine beach on Moningwanaykaning Minis (Madeline Island) on Gitchigamig (Lake Superior) looking out over Cheqaumegon Bay,  reflects on how the oil spill catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico and support for Ojibwe treaty rights  can bring the people of the Earth together to make peace with each other, the land, and the Creator.
