Judy Da Silva and Roberta Keesick,

Indigenous leaders of the Grassy Narrows First Nation, embarked on a week-long tour to share front-line stories from the Trans-Canada Highway blockade and the struggle to stop clear-cut logging on their traditional territory. Sponsored by RAN, the tour reached 450 people in six cities throughout Canada. Highlights included a keynote address by Judy Da Silva at a conference focused on collaborations between Indigenous groups and non-governmental organizations like RAN called "Re-envisioning Relationships," and the unfurling of a banner on the front steps of the Ontario legislature in Toronto.
