Documenting how the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug’s traditional territory was threatened by mining exploration in 2006, this chronicle reveals how the people followed their customary duty to protect the land, asking the mining exploration company to leave. The company left—and then sued the remote First Nation for $10 billion, and the ensuing legal dispute lasted two years only to result in the jailing of community leaders.
