Honor the Earth, one of the Indigenous-led groups driving the ongoing opposition against Line 3, will present a superb spread of musicians to perform at a Water is Life concert this August. Co-founded by activist and former Green Party vice presidential candidate Winona LaDuke and the Indigo Girls, Honor the Earth raises awareness of Indigenous environmental issues through art, music, and media.
Midwest legend Bon Iver will headline the event on Aug. 18, with vocal support from Grammy-nominated Mumu Fresh. Justin Vernon and his Bon Iver live band have no other U.S. tour dates announced as of now, which should draw fans near and far to Duluth’s Bayfront Park.
Local musicians compose most of the concert’s lineup, including singer-songwriter Charlie Parr, Low’s Alan Sparhawk, Ojibwe Nation healer and singer Dorene Day (Waubanewquay), Duluth’s Superior Siren, Annie Humphrey of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, and the Pines’ David Huckfelt. Other
