In Production

KI and the vision for the future of their lands and environment that benefits all life.

Synopsis

Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) has governed and cared for their Indigenous Homeland, Kitchenuhmaykoosib Aaki, since time before memory.

In 2008, KI's Chief and five community leaders were jailed for refusing to allow mining exploration which threatened KI's water supply. The remote First Nation community succeeded in fighting off mining exploration by Platinex Inc. But now other companies are staking claims within KI territory. KI's pristine waters, their sacred landscape, and the lake trout they depend on are at rist.

KI has a vision for the futre of their lands and environment that benefits both KI and all life. Ontario must respect KI's leadership. Recognize and respect KI's Water Declaration, which excludes all industry from the Big Trout Lake and Fawn River Watersheds. And respect KI's Indigenous Laws...Kanawayandan D'aaki!
