The public is invited tocelebrate Native American Heritage Month with a free viewing of theaward-winning documentary Water Warriors,Monday, November 25, 6:00 pm at the Mason County District Library in Ludington. 

Water Warriors is the story of a community’ssuccessful fight to protect their water from the oil and natural gas industry. In2013, Texas-based SWN Resources arrived in New Brunswick, Canada to explore fornatural gas. The region is known for its forestry, farming and fishingindustries, which are both commercial and small-scale subsistence operationsthat rural communities depend on. In response, a multicultural group ofunlikely warriors–including members of the Mi’kmaq Elsipogtog First Nation,French-speaking Acadians and English-speaking families–set up a series of roadblockades, sometimes on fire, preventing exploration. After months ofresistance, their efforts not only halted drilling; they elected a newgovernment and won an indefinite moratorium on fracking in the province.
