Reclaiming Our Indigeneity and Our Place in Modern Society

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This is a time of resurgence for Indigenous people, who are reclaiming their lands and identity, while demanding recognition of their traditional knowledge and rights. The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN), a community of 1,200 people living downstream from the largest industrial project on the planet, the Alberta Tar Sands, is on the frontlines of the global fight against the ravages of fossil fuel extraction. The ACFN’s resistance is a prime example oFf Indigenous resurgence in Canada, revealing how Indigenous peoples are shaking up how we do and see things and pointing the way forward for the protection, preservation and future governance of Mother Earth.
