“Introducing Grandmother Willi Nolan, one of the Grandmothers of the Wabanaki Confederacy.”
Lena shares her experiences as she sat in Grandmothers Council during the 2015 Wabanaki Confederacy Conference*, and asks Grandmother Willi about effective activism; and the links between water protection actions at Standing Rock, North Dakota and the successful moratorium victory following the Wabanaki-New Brunswick Shale Gas Rebellion of 2013; and the ongoing protection actions via the Peoples Lawsuit, and alliance-building.
