Have you been curious about what Landback really means? Join us for a lunchtime discussion on March 1st with Jacob Crane from Indigenous Climate Action! We are so excited to have Jacob come and speak to SFU students about the intersections of climate justice, LandBack!, and how we build toward Indigenous futures. He will also be speaking about Landback in the context of the TMX pipeline, the terminus of which is located only 10 minutes away from SFU Burnaby campus, highlighting the role universities and students play in addressing climate violence and its impact on Indigenous peoples and territories. This will be an online, one hour event with a Q&A.
Jacob is a citizen of the Tsuut’ina Nation, Alberta, Canada. He is the Community Engagement Coordinator for Indigenous Climate Action, an Indigenous women-led organization dedicated to creating a world with sovereign and thriving Indigenous Peoples and cultures leading climate justice for all. He first joined the climate justice movement in 2015 after hearing about the No Dakota Access Pipeline and the struggles that the Standing Rock Sioux tribe was experiencing. It also brought him back to the Idle No More movements that swept across so-called Canada in 2012.
