Lubicon Cree face cultural genocide in Alberta

“”For us, it’s not a question of asking for land. We know it’s our land. The problem is that the province figures it’s theirs and they keep issuing licenses – permits to the oil and gas industry and also to the logging industry. It’s been a long, hard struggle. They’re finding more and more oil and gas and now we’re talking tar sands.” — Lubicon Cree Chief Bernard Ominayak

In “Our land, my people”, a new half-hour documentary by Amnesty International, the Lubicon Cree of northern Alberta tell the story of their long struggle defend their culture and way of life.
