The Biskaabiiyang Collective joined Indigenous Waves to talk about resurgence and resistance and collective organizing in the face of racism. When politician Tamara Johnson placed an overtly racist ad in the Chronicle Journal, Biskaabiiyang Collective took action with a campaign targeting advertisers. Damien Lee and Jana-Rae Yerxa joined Indigenous Waves to talk about their collective.
“Biskaabiiyang is Anishinaabemowin for an ethic of “returning to ourselves.””
In the second half of the show, Maariu Giovanni Mikwanis Costa talks about the time he spent at Unist’ot’en Camp.
Unist’ot’en Campis a resistance community whose purpose is to protect sovereign Wet’suwet’en territory from several proposed pipelines from the Tar Sands Gigaproject and shale gas from Hydraulic Fracturing Projects in the Peace River Region.
