lyrics

“This is the same water that was here when dinosaurs were here. There is no new water. This is the only water we will ever know. This is the same water my great ancestors drank from and harvested our wild rice upon. This water is sacred, because without water there’s no life. You cannot drink oil.” -Winona LaDuke, Honor the Earth

“The Mississippi River’s watershed flows through one-third of the United States and two Canadian provinces. Her water’s flow 2,551 miles south from Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. The name Mississippi comes from the Anishinaabe Ojibwe word ‘Messipi’ or ‘Mee-zee-see-bee,’ which means ‘long deep river.’ Everyone on this audio recording contributed their time and talents to protect these waters -- none of which could be made possible without the endless hours of in-kind support from Master Audio & Mixing Engineer Brett Huus. May this song help make a difference. Thanks for all you do.” – Larry Long, Producer, Arranger & Composer

"I've been involved with Honor the Earth and their work protecting Native lands and water since the early '90s. With the climate crisis beyond it's tipping point, the movement to stop these destructive and unnecessary fossil fuel pipelines is crucial and deserves more attention than it's getting. We can join the worldwide shift to developing renewables, ensuring the protection of our environment, the creation of thousands of jobs, and lessening the risk and trauma to both Native communities and the whole Great Lakes region. I'm hopeful 'No More Pipeline Blues (On This Land Where We Belong)' will bring more awareness about the need to Stop Line 3 and capture the attention of Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz as well as President Biden, who have the authority to stop construction of the pipeline until ongoing environmental litigation is settled." – Bonnie Raitt

“Why do we have to fight to save water when water is life? I hope our work will arouse the populace to think then act to save our water before it's too late.” -- Sharon M. Day, Singer, Executive Director. Indigenous Peoples Task Force
