Join us for a lunch-time round table with Michel Thusky, Elder, Algonquin of Barriere Lake.
A slow-motion crime is taking place in Barriere Lake, three hours north of Ottawa-Gatineau.
The Algonquins of Barriere Lake are a First Nation who hunt, fish, trap, and harvest on more than 10,000 square kilometers of territory. Their way of life is under threat by multinational logging company Resolute Forestry Products and the complicity of the Quebec and Canadian governments.
Michel’s talk on “Protecting our Identity” will reveal how the Algonquin of Barriere Lake are resisting threats to their survival from logging companies and governments. Come hear how they are pushing back against logging encroachment on their territories and fighting section 74 of the Indian Act.
