In this Arthur exclusive, Cheyenne Wood interviews an Indigenous Trent Student who was involved in organizing a moratorium on unceded Algonquin lands near La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve in Northern Quebec. Local Anishinaabeg community members have been calling for a five year moratorium on non-Indigenous moose hunting to to allow for repopulation. Recent years have seen a steep decline in moose, and a lack of response from the Quebec government. Cheyenne Wood uses this example to explore other examples of contemporary colonial violence in Canada, and the difficulties involved in defending unceded territory.
In this weeks' episode of Black Girls Chatter, Shaela and Alicia discuss BIPOC mascots and how they affect the communities they are depicting, giving specific examples of Aunt Jemima and the Lakefield Chiefs.
