Jim Pictou of the Mi'kmaq Warrior Society
 Radio BASICS (CHRY 105.50 FM Toronto)  Contact Contributor

Jim Pictou is a member of the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society, “the homeland security of the Mi’kmaq nation.” Today, the Mi’kmaq, whose ancestral lands span much of the Atlantic region of Canada, are at the center of a developing resistance to hydraulic fracturing – or ‘fracking’ in New Brunswick, the process by which high-pressure water and chemicals are injected into the ground to remove natural gas from shale rock. The resistance to fracking in New Brunswick has seen the development of a broad united front of native and non-native people.

This interview was conducted with Jim Pictou on September 20, 2013, by Steve da Silva for the Two Row Times and BASICS Community News Service.
