CBC Short Docs Peace River Rising

Helen Knott, a Dane-Zaa/Nehiyaw social worker, poet and activist, explores the connection between violence against Indigenous women and violence against the land. She takes us through the dramatic changes she’s witnessed in her home territory, as woodlands have disappeared to make way for pipelines. On the streets of Fort St. John, Helen and a fellow lifetime resident reflect on how a city of familiar faces is now overrun with strangers who have minimal personal attachment to the area. She leaves us with a deeper perspective into why she does the work she does — and her hopes for a new world.
