Caleb Behn, lawyer, environmental activist and the subject of a critically acclaimed documentary, is the featured speaker at the U of R’s latest Deliberation and Debate series.
Behn is Eh-Cho Dene and Dunne-Za/Cree from Treaty 8 territory in northeastern B.C. His talk, organized by the Aboriginal Student Centre, takes place March 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the Education Building (ED 193).
The release of the documentary Fractured Land vaulted Behn to national prominence. The film documents Behn’s journey as he tries to reconcile his peoples’ need for oil resource industry jobs in northeastern B.C., while ensuring the environment is protected.
The title of Behn’s talk is Indigenous Water Law in the Anthropocene: Reconciliation Beyond the Human.
