Join Crystal Lameman, of the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, for a discussion of the just transition to a low-carbon economy from an Indigenous perspective.
Crystal Lameman is a member of the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, for whom she is the Treaty Coordinator. The Beaver Lake Cree have filed a historically precedent setting Treaty Rights lawsuit against the Governments of Canada and Alberta for violation of their Treaty rights through exploitation of their Natural Resources, including tar sands. This case is based on the cumulative impacts in the over industrialization of their traditional hunting territory.
