The “Line 9” and “Energy East” pipelines threaten to bring tar sands “crude” from Alberta for export through ports in the Atlantic. These pipelines will traverse through many Indigenous communities and natural areas, threatening not only the health of the land but the sovereignty of these territories and their peoples. We have teamed up with Indigenous organizer Amanda Lickers to produce Kahsatstenhsera: Indigenous Resistance to Tar Sands Pipelines. This video focuses on Indigenous resistance, and seeks to build capacity in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities by providing an educational and accessible resource to build awareness across communities. Featuring stories and perspectives from land defenders in Athabasca Chipewyan, Aamjiwnaang, Six Nations of the Grand River, Kanehsata:ke and Elsipogtog First Nations, this video not only educates the public on the issues being faced by pipeline construction and expansion, but showcases Indigenous resistance and provides an anti-colonial lens for understanding environmental destruction.
