Developing our natural resources has allowed many Indigenous communities to thrive in economic reconciliation
Over the past couple of years, Hollywood has been increasingly involved in Canada’s natural resource development. Whether through tweets or promoting a campaign, a number of Hollywood actors have been clear in their opposition to Indigenous resource development. Many activist actors have said they believe industry is “funding the violation of Indigenous rights.” But that’s simply not true. Spreading that fabrication is disinformation.

Our communities are trying to move away from that. Developing our natural resources has allowed many Indigenous communities to thrive in economic reconciliation and real self-determination.
