Melina Laboucan Massimo Photo Essay Where Children

Melina Laboucan-Massimo is a member of the Lubicon Cree First Nation and a Climate and Energy Campaigner with Greenpeace Canada. Facing firsthand the impacts of the Alberta tar sands to her traditional territory, Laboucan-Massimo has been a vocal advocate for Indigenous rights for the past 10 years. She has written numerous articles on the tar sands and produced short documentaries on water issues and Indigenous cultural revitalization. Joining Greenpeace in 2009, she helped to raise the alarm bells on the tar sands, including a related incident with one of the largest oil spills in Alberta near her home community of Little Buffalo. She is featured in Greenpeace’s photo essay about the spill and its impact on local communities. She has also worked with numerous other organizations, including TakingITGlobal, Redwire Native Media Society, Indigenous Media Arts Society and the Indigenous Portal.
