7/20 National Congress of American Indians takes issue with the Sandpiper pipeline project


Enbridge Energy's proposed Sandpiper oil pipeline is drawing the ire of yet another group - this time, the National Congress of American Indians is weighing in, and they want the EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers to address not just the environmental impact of the project, but what they see as threats to tribal sovereignty, religious freedoms, and federally protected resources of the region's indigenous peoples.

Don Wedll, the former DNR Commissioner for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe has recieved awards from the EPA for his work on environmental issues and he joins us to talk about what this resolution means.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
