MCFN Bison Hunt Documentary
Kwusen is pleased to be featured in the MCFN and ACFN Community Based Monitoring Program Calendar for the month of September. This page highlights the film that Kwusen and the Mikisew Cree First Nation collaborated on documenting the community's traditional bison hunt. From the calendar text:
"Kwusen Research & Media was engaged by the Mikisew Cree First Nation to create a film that would document the challenges faced by the MCFN in maintaining their traditional knowledge, livelihoods, and land use in the face of rapid industrial developments of the oil sands in Northern Alberta. In February 2014, researchers accompanied and filmed the community's traditional bison hunt as a pat of the First Nation's ongoing effort to exercise and protect there traditional livelihood, and to tell the story of the MCFN's opposition to a proposed industrial oil sands development on their traditional lands."
