Ep. 014 - The Front Lines are a Callin

From the coastal waters of Mi'kma'ki to the yintah, Indigenous folks have been leading some of the most and successful resistance movements across Turtle Island, despite often violent reprisals from the police and in the case of Mi'kmaq fisherfolk even some settlers. Despite this, these activists persist because the work they do is necessary to protect Indigenous lands and livelihoods.One does not have to go far from Toronto to find a successful example of front-line indigenous activism either. For over a year, 1492 Land Back Lane (led by Haudenosaunee activists) have resisted multiple violent police incursions In this episode, Rocky talks to Skylar Williams (Mohawk-Wolf Clan), the spokesperson for 1492 Land Back Lane and a veteran of countless front-line struggles about his work, the struggle and why it is vital that settlers begin show up to stand alongside himself and others to protect our Indigenous brothers and sisters and the lands they call home.
