Ojibwa sacred places day sunrise on Lake Superior in northern Michigan


The clear, pristine water sparkles as the sun peaks over Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula next to Little Presque Isle about 10 miles from Marquette, MI moments before a group of Ojibwa women from around the Midwest held a ceremony to protect the world’s largest freshwater lake on annual day of prayer to protect Native American sacred places. The June 19, 2010 ceremony was held by several Ojibwa tribes because sacred Ojibwa (Anishinaabe) land on the nearby Yellow Dog Plains and Lake Superior tributaries are threatened by a sulfide mining project.
