"What we do to the land, we do to ourselves.” Documenting the largely untold story of the boreal forest and the Indigenous Peoples who call it home, how it is being clear-cut for the manufacture of toilet paper, and that protecting and conserving the boreal is an existential imperative. Told by the First Nations Elders and Leaders of the boreal, leading scientists and activists, who share their enlightened, unified vision that the way forward lies in elevating and supporting Indigenous knowledge/stewardship in combination with the ages-old wisdom that can be found in the life of these forests and trees. Join us for Q&A with filmmaker Michael Zelniker and ethnobotanist Nancy Turner. Pay-what-you-can donation at the door.
