“The Caretakers” is a 40-minute documentary by David Goldberg that tells the story of how First Nations people in British Columbia led a direct action to stop the Texas-based Kinder Morgan company from drilling for samples in preparation for a mega pipeline project across Canada. The film takes an inside look at indigenous leadership and white allyship in respect to confronting the fossil fuel industry, as well as the role of law enforcement. Included in this evening’s focus on mega pipeline projects will be other short films on indigenous-led resistance to Canadian pipelines and the role of all people in their future. We will have speakers to facilitate the community discussion following the films.
