Good people, Great event, “Never Mined” that would be Sulfide Mining of course!

The Ducks know what to Squawk about - Sulfide Mining

The ducks play a No Sulfide Mining Tune

The North House Folk School in Grand Marais hosted this joyful Solstice Puppet Pagent celebrating Minnesota’s Northland.  Families and talented participants of all ages joined to together to entertain and inform us of the value of Nature and the threat to the BWCA and Lake Superior region being offered by a new type of mining for Minnesota.  The ducks, the youth, the players and the audience voiced a playful but resounding rejection of Sulfide Mining from my point of view.  Marco Good, one of the organizers and musicians added, ” I guess it wouldn’t really be fair to say that all those assembled for our pageant were against sulfide mining.  But I do hope our sweet little show did work to raise consciousness some.” See the entire presentation from the Good Harbor Hill Players accompanied by the Gamepalaj (the band).  Enjoy!


Summer suns are glowing,

Over land and see

Happy light is flowing,

Bountiful and free,

Everyone rejoices

In the mellow rays

– William Walsham Howe, 1871
From the Never Mined 2011 Midsummer Puppet Pageant

A personal thanks goes to all the artistic, creative, and talented people from the Grand Marais area who worked so hard to make this a joyful evening.  I can’t imagine not being at each and every succeeding Solstice celebration you may imagine and present.  It is heart warming to see again there is magic and hope even under the darkest of threats.  CHEERS!
