Beatrice Hunter on Her Fight to Stop Muskrat Falls

In Episode 53, we get to talk to Beatrice HUnter – an Inuk grandmother, warrior, and land defender. Beatrice was arrested and imprisoned in a men’s jail for peacefully defending her territory from the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric megaproject and concerns over methylmercury contamination.

Beatrice’s story is one of the most heartfelt and impactful ones I have ever heard. Please share it widely.
