honor the earth roster grows
                 updated 05:54 pdt fri, sep 15 2000


                 amy ray and emily saliers - the indigo girls - have
                 made native american issues their own for many
                 years, backing up their support with more than 45
                 benefit concerts for the honor the earth campaign
                 since 1993.
                     they are adding to that total this fall and
                 bringing along a few friends - like bonnie raitt,
                 jackson browne, david crosby, dar williams,
                 shawn mullins, indigenous and special guest joan
                 baez.
                     the lineup for each show will vary, with baez
                 appearing through october 3 and raitt through
                 october 6, after which browne takes the stage.
                     the outing launches september 30 at the
                 shrine in billings, mont., - the first of a handful of
                 shows in montana - and travels through the west
                 and midwest, including stops at some native
                 american reservations along the way.
                     the tour winds down october 19 at the
                 menominee reservation in menominee, wisc.
                     honor the earth - which counts buffalo
                 protection and restoration among its prime projects
                 - reports that state and federal officials have killed
                 more than 2,500 buffalo outside yellowstone
                 national park over the last four years.
                     the indigo girls have raised more than $465,000
                 over the years for the group, which has distributed
                 grants to 65 native american groups for
                 environmental defense, sacred land protections and
                 restoration of sustainable communities.
                     "as non-indians, we cannot sit by silently and
                 watch the continued destruction of native
                 communities," the indigo girls said in an open
                 letter. "the basic issues of human rights, justice
                 and our own survival are ultimately at stake."
                     in addition to the honor the earth benefits, the
                 indigo girls will stay on the road through the end of
                 october, stopping at a number of colleges. the tour
                 coincides with the october 3 release of a 16-track
                 indigo girls collection titled a retrospective.

subject: [ig-news] hte site updated


[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

the honor the earth website has recently been updated.

indigo girls highlights include a "bury my heart at wounded knee"
quicktime video, a teaser for an internet-only release of a new (unnamed)
song, a picture gallery from the 1997 hte tour, and a new sepia-toned
publicity photo (in which amy looks very thin, young, femme, and (eerily
enough) a lot like my younger sister.)

i just had time to take a quick peak at the site, but another cool item
is an online version of the "support" postcard that they typically
distribute and collect at the hte concerts.

the url is www.honorearth.org


the world is my country, all mankind are my brethen, and to do good is my
religion.
