HEALING TOUR OF 2018 & BEYOND.
Protecting WATER will take all of us. Let this map be your group’s guide.
See the full map poster here.
This map poster was created in 2018 to show a few of the known Indigenous Sacred Sites are, where some of the abandon mines are located, where present operating mines are now, and future threats.
It is our hope that people will use this map to learn more about these locations, visit the waters there to help them heal, and help us protect these waters from future mining operations.
This is not just a local issue. Water from the Black Hills, including the Madison and Mnilusa aquifers, moves in all four directions and flows out to the prairies. It is pumped to the surface for domestic and livestock use. Once water and lands are contaminated by toxic mining they will be polluted for hundreds of years or more.
What Can You Do? Talk to your elected officials at the local, state, federal and tribal levels. Write Letters to the Editors. Attend public hearings, meetings, and action events. Inform your family and friends of these toxic mining threats.
