8th Fire Whose Land Is It Anyway?

8th Fire Whose Land Is It Anyway?

There's no getting around it. Land is the biggest sticking point in the relationship between Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the "settler" population. Who owns it, benefits from it, gets to say when, if and how it gets developed? These questions are all the more crucial because the lands in dispute sit on a treasure-trove of resources, which the world is eager to buy from Canada. But don't despair. This episode of 8th Fire, full of breathtaking HD landscapes and compelling characters, explores the creative ways of working this out.
