Indigenous women from across Canada refuse to wait for the Canadian government or courts to determine their own fate and the future of their children. And thus, a small but potent contingent of self-determining woman are uniting to provide solutions to climate change in the form of tiny homes, solar panels, and activism. This sisterhood forms at a time when fossil fuel companies, the Canadian government, and Indigenous rights are battling over the legality and ethics of the controversial Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline. Many women’s voices are represented in this story by the National Observer, including Melina Laboucan-Massimo (Indigenous rights educator and founder of Lubicon Solar), Anushka Azadi, Karissa Glenda, Kanahus Manuel (Secwepenc Indigenous rights advocate, birth worker, and one of the primary tiny homes warriors), Cedar George-Parker (Tsleil-Waututh Nation), and Anushka Azadi.
