Innu Elder who is no stranger to standing up for rights and culture ready for his day in court

An Innu Elder says defending his way of life in Labrador doesn’t make him a criminal.

Bart Jack was among a group who called themselves land protectors that fought against the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project last fall.

He’s now facing criminal charges along with 27 other people.

This is just the latest battle the Innu have taken on to protect their Indigenous rights and culture.

    I am proud of you Bart Jack. For most Labradorians who are impacted we had lots to lose and nothing to gain from the raping of our land and the destruction of our food supply.
