Fish farms are a global phenomenon that are controversial and threaten a staple food source of many Indigenous communities. One community in the Broughton Archipelago along the coast of B.C. takes a stand to protect the lands and waters in their traditional territories. (Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw translates to the four tribes of the Dzawada’enuxw.)

Lindsey Mae Willie is a member of the Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw people, living and working in the remote village of Kingcome Inlet, B.C. Her filmmaking explores stories of cultural resurgence, revitalization and her peoples’ resistance to the impacts of colonization.
