Marty Cobenais, pipeline organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network; Winona LaDuke, American Indian activist and executive director of Honor the Earth; and Lorna Hanes ride horses Sunday afternoon on the Enbridge pipeline right-of-way south of Oliver, Wis. They hope to draw attention to the expansion of the Alberta Clipper pipeline that would bring additional tar sands from Alberta through the Northland region’s lines.
