WXPR: Tribal activists recall battle to block mine in Wisconsin

Activists from Sokaogon Chippewa Community reflect on the purchase of land that was slated for a mine in northern Wisconsin:
Today marks 10 years since two Native tribes purchased land that was once slated for a copper and zinc mine near the Mole Lake Sokaogon Reservation.

That tribe and Forest County Potawatomi bought the land for more than 16 million dollars.

WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski went to a celebration this weekend marking the anniversary…and she sat down with some of the tribal activists from Mole Lake.
