INDIGENOUS HEROES OF 2015
MUSKRAT Magazine would like to acknowledge the following brave individuals who against many odds had the courage to create positive change and build a better future for Indigenous people in 2015.
1. Caleb Behn; Dunne-Za/Eh-Cho Dene
Caleb Behn is the star of the documentary Fractured Land, which made its debut this year at the Hot Docs Film Festival in Toronto. The documentary focuses on the work he does as a lawyer and environmental activist that raises awareness about the impacts of hydraulic fracking in British Columbia. He studied law at The University of Victoria where he was one of the first students to specialize in environmental law and sustainability. Behn was inspired to attend law school to help his People stand up against big oil and gas companies in court.
