Cleantech Podcast - Interview with Rueben George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation - Author of 'It Stops Here: Standing Up for Our Lands, Our Waters, and Our People'


Cleantech Podcast - December 13, 2023 ( Newswire), a global news source and leading investor resource covering cleantech stocks issues a new edition of the Cleantech and Climate Change Podcast.

Host Dawn Van Zant talks to Rueben George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, author of ‘It Stops Here: Standing Up for Our Lands, Our Waters, and Our People.' Rueben talks about his battle to stop the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline; a fight that started for him in 2010 and went through Prime Minister Harper's term and continued with Justin Trudeau's election, who then purchased the pipeline from Kinder Morgan and created the ensuing crown corporation.

Rueben shares how he fought his own battles with alcohol and anger and how ceremonies of smudging, sweat lodges and sun dances healed his spirit and made him the warrior he is today.

He tells us how his grandfather, actor and author Chief Dan George shaped his future and inspired him with wisdom and a love of the land and water.

Explaining why he fought so hard to save the waters of Burrard Inlet from the pipeline expansion he said, "Our language means the people and the water around Vancouver. As the story goes in our legend, our first mother comes from the water, so that's essentially our grandmother. We grew to have a reciprocal relationship to the water through ceremony, fishing; through, everything. So that's one reason, but another reason is that every ceremony I've been to around the world, in South America, Central America, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, they all do things in common. In their ceremonies they use something to represent the energy of the sun, the earth, the water and air, and through that process, when you use those different elements to pray, you learn to create a reciprocal relationship to those things. When you use them in prayer, they are things that we can't live without. You start to care for it through ceremony, and a spiritual connection to it. You want to do something for it; protect and take care of it because those elements take care of us. It just makes sense to protect what we love. And that's why we stand up against the Trans Mountain Pipeline."

Rueben also talks about the failing economics of the pipeline from it's inception, and the cost to Canadian taxpayers.

He finishes the interview with the Eagle song, one that will reach into your heart and inspire you.
