The new generation of Eco Warriors at the Indigenous Environmental Network's Protecting Mother Earth Gathering, in the land of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara, in New Town, North Dakota. A fun run/walk begins the fourth and final day of the gathering on Sunday, July 31, 2011. Indigenous Peoples from as far away as the Dene' in Canada to the Dine' in Arizona, joined Mayan from Guatemala and Wixakari (Huicholes) from Mexico, to protect Mother Earth from uranium mining, coal-fired power plants, toxic waste dumps, the scam of carbon credits, and other destructive corporate attacks on Indian lands. Here in the land of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara, oil and gas wells are devastating the land and air.
