Play • 23 min

Eriel Tchekwie Deranger jokes about coming up with chants and making protest signs being her arts and crafts while growing up.

Just prior to her birth, Deranger’s family was forcibly removed from their trap line in northern Saskatchewan in order to make way for a uranium mine.

Deranger, who is Dene and a member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, then spent the early years of her life growing up downstream from the Alberta oil sands.
