The Bad River
 
06:02
Our Trip A couple weeks ago, on a long weekend, my family took a trip up North to the Sloughs, WI. A mining corporation named GTAC had a plan to drill for copper in their beautiful woods. This would damage the environment by contaminating the ecosystems, habitats for wildlife, and river water used for drinking. Above all, it would be within the Bad River Reservation -- a sacred land promised to be one of the very few (just making up 2.3% of the US) areas sworn protected for the Indians -- and now it too is being violated. TO HELP: My Dad created a few radio shows: At http://healthwriters.wordpress.com/ visit these audio recordings: "Protectors of the Water" and "The effects of iron mining on our health, the environment and pocketbooks" My Mom and her organization, WLCV (Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters), played the biggest role. It was because of her group that we even went. She fought against it day and night -- fighting with words I had a political cartoon assignment in Literacy Bridges class. For a current event, I chose the mining bill. It shows Mr. Monopoly, in his hands holding a pitcher of water and an envelope of money labeled "worker's salary". It was very well drawn and shaded -- no doubt it was the rich board game mascot representing the rich corporations and Scott Walker. Beneath him were the words "Your Choice: Jobs or Water". To the sides of him was a detailed drawing of protesters at the capitol and a mining machine plowing through a beautiful landscape, nearby a stream, labeled "Native American Reservation" My dog, Jackie, wasn't the biggest influence, but she barked whenever a protesting crowd cheered The final result was that the bill was canceled — VICTORY!!! Back to the trip Friday 7:00: Wake up, get ready to go -- definitely long underwear. 8:30: Depart from Middleton. 2:30: Arrive in the Sloughs. 3:00: Depart on boat ride down Bad River. A once in a lifetime experience. See eagles, hawks, Native American fishing nets, and lots of nature down the open river. 4:00: Arrive on white-sandy beach on Lake Superior. Walk along the beautiful beach and see small objects like shells and logs along the shore. Visit a marsh. This is very sacred ground. 5:30: Go down the Bad River one last time. 6:00: Return to the house of the Native American hosts. 6:30: Depart for Copper Falls State Park 7:30-9:00: Time to hike; see the golden falls, dense woods, and picturesque outlooks 9:00: Eat a Native American chili dinner (with more sides) and roast marshmallows by the campfire. 10:00: Drive to log cabin for night 11:00: Go to bed after a long tiring day Saturday 8:30: Wake up and get dressed, make use of amenities. 9:00: Take a walk along the lake right outside your door 9:30: Pack up 10:00: Leave 3:00: Arrive home
