Water is Life: Stop Line 3 Benefit Concert

Honor the Earth will be presenting the first ever “Water Is Life: Stop Line 3” music, art and cultural festival August 18, 2021, at Bayfront Park in Duluth on the shores of the mighty Gichi-Gami (Lake Superior).

Featuring an unprecedented coalition of musicians, artists, poets and Indigenous leaders, this one-day festival is a celebration of water as the fundamental life-giving resource of Mother Earth, and a full-throttle resistance of music and song against the Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline currently snaking its way through the waterways and Anishinaabe lands of northern Minnesota.

All proceeds will benefit the indigenous women-led Honor the Earth non-profit in its fight against Enbridge’s Line 3 construction in Native treaty Lands during a time of climate crisis and severe drought up north.

Hosted by Winona LaDuke. Duluth City Council President and Indigenous leader, Renee Van Nett, will deliver welcoming remarks.

Doors open at noon. All ages festival. To buy tickets, click here.
