Native America Calling: Update on mining clashes
Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Members of a Nevada tribe are at odds with a lithium mine proposal that was fast-tracked by the Trump Administration. They’re concerned about damage to environmental and cultural treasures.

A federal judge dealt a legal setback for backers of a different mine proposal in Michigan. It’s the second blow in recent months for the Back Forty Mine proposal that is opposed by the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin and other tribes.

And a Minnesota Supreme Court decision blocks a key part of the PolyMet copper-nickel mine proposal in Minnesota.

Native America Calling will hear the status of these and other projects.
