In a November post, I referred to Indigenous and other groups taking action to protect land and water against inappropriate, ecologically harmful development.
The Dominion’s most recent issue, “Warrior Up,” is all about Indigenous land defenders across Canada, featuring 24 articles by Indigenous writers and activists.
Three of those writers/activists will be at Singing Pebble Books (206 Main St.) on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2017, from 2-5 p.m. to talk about the issues and sign copies of the magazine:
- Debra Huron and Albert Dumont, whose article “The spirit of Asinabka rises as Algonquin First Nations assert land rights in Canada’s capital city” covers the Chaudière Falls area and how the proposed “Zibi” development and Hydro Ottawa construction are at odds with long-standing plans for the sacred site.
- Neecha Dupuis, who was interviewed for “Facing Down the Ring of Fire,” which describes efforts to protect land and livelihoods in Northern Ontario from mining and resource extraction.
Find out more about the three speakers and event details on the event page.
Thanks to The Dominion, you can read the full issue via their website.
