IMPORTANT CONFERENCE JUNE 15-19 IN WISCONSIN
The Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) is holding its fifth annual Protecting Mother Earth Conference June 15-19 near Mole Lake, Wisconsin. The conference is being hosted by the Mole Lake Sokaogon Chippewa community in conjunction with the Midwest Treaty Network of Madison, Wisconsin. IEN is a U.S.-, Alaskan-, and Canadian-based grass-roots organization. The theme of this year's conference is "Environmental Genocide." Some 1500 native and non-native people and groups will come together at Mole Lake to discuss issues and develop strategies to stop environmental injustices within and near indigenous lands, such as deforestation, toxic and nuclear waste dumping, radiation exposures, and contamination of air, land, and water. Non-indigenous people of good will are welcome at the gathering. For further information, contact conference coordinator Emily Iron Cloud Koenan at (715) 682-4554; fax: (715) 682-9112.
