Remembering the Crandon Mine Proposal
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.
