"Sacred Water, New Mine: a Michigan Tribe Battles a Global Corporation"

"Head in any direction on Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula and you will reach gushing rivers, placid ponds and lakes -- both Great and small. An abundant resource, this water has nourished a small Native American community for hundreds of years.
