December 03, 2014

We, the women of Grassy Narrows, make a statement on behalf of our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren on resource extraction on our traditional harvesting lands since time immemorial.

We are carriers of lifeand nation keepers of the Anishinabek peoples.

We will not allow resource extractionthat destroys the habitat of our harvesting lands and waters…

We are the voice of the animals, trees, land, waters, ancestors, present and future children.

We are the voice of the Anishnabe in Asubpeeschooseewagong (Grassy Narrows) that chose to use our voice to protect and speak for Asubpeeschoseewagong traditional territory.
