The women of the Blood Tribe who have set up a blockade against fracking operations that are about to begin on their traditional lands in Alberta, Canada, speak about their motivation.

“As a grandmother and a mother, and as a member of the Blood Tribe, I have a vested interest like everyone that shares Mother Earth with us to help protect what we have,” explains Cassie Brewer, holding up a sign decrying the practice. “The treaties pushed us here. We don’t have another land to go to.”

Fracking is a sore point all through Indian Country, from the Marcellus Shale deposits in western New York State and Pennsylvania, to New Brunswick, Canada.
