Nikitiniau Innusi

I Keep the Land Alive

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Tshaukeush Elizabeth Penashue

Born into a traditional nomadic family, Tshaukuesh Elizabeth Penashue came to international attention in the 1980s and 1990s when she led protests against NATO’s occupation of Innu land in Labrador. To promote the Innu cause, she spoke to audiences across Canada and Europe, went to jail, and testified before the International Human Rights Tribunal in The Hague. She became a heroine to many for her fight for the environment and Indigenous rights.
