Gespe'gewa'gi - The Last Land

Episode 7 - The Rangers

The Listuguj Rangers are patrolling the river and putting safety and sustainability first.

In this episode, we meet some of the rangers who patrol the river, like mother-daughter team June and Ashley, ex-military Don Leo, and supervisor Sonny. Today, the waters are calm, but as elders like Peter Metallic tell us, it wasn’t always so – from gunshots at night to clashes with the police, finally giving way to the establishment of the communities' own branch of enforcement. The rangers' model is so successful that other Indigenous communities are looking to model after it themselves.
