This week on Ter­ra Infor­ma we share the sec­ond part of an inter­view with Eriel Deranger, co-founder and Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Indige­nous Cli­mate Action, where we talk about what it means to live in rela­tion to each oth­er and the environment.

In Reject Teck Part 1: Who is Teck?! we shared back­ground on the min­ing com­pa­ny Teck Resources Ltd and Eriel explained why the pro­posed Fron­tier Oil­sands Mine should be reject­ed. Just before we aired that episode on Feb­ru­ary 25th, the Reject­Teck cam­paign tast­ed sweet sweet victory.

Sort of.

Teck reject­ed itself in a let­ter pub­lished Feb­ru­ary 23, where it removed it’s appli­ca­tion for envi­ron­men­tal approval.

While that project has been shelved, the inter­view we share with you today is deeply rel­e­vant because it cov­ers themes that include the ongo­ing way we approach resource projects, the envi­ron­ment, and each oth­er across this coun­try. Eriel is orga­niz­ing and cam­paign­ing about more than one oil­sands mine. Indige­nous Cli­mate Action is an Indige­nous cli­mate jus­tice orga­ni­za­tion. That means work­ing to put Indige­nous rights and lead­er­ship front and cen­ter in a cli­mate tran­si­tion strat­e­gy that pro­tects the land, water, and resources we all rely on.
