In this episode we get an update from John Hawke, an Anishinabek man from the Beausoleil First Nation and long time activist, who was arrested on July 28th 2019, after more than a month of organising a blockade and camp outside the entrance to Awenda provincial park. We also hear from Verna Friday, who is working with John on his legal defense.

John says the charges that led to his arrest were fabricated and were laid to clear him from the camp which was one part of an ongoing campaign to raise awareness about Indigenous rights and sovereignty, treaty responsibilities, and the federal policies of extinguishing Indigenous title.

In this interview, John speaks of the successes of the blockade, including meeting many local settlers who reached out to learn about the land issue and their treaty responsibilities.

John then invites his Auntie, Verna Friday of Bear Island, Lake Temagami, to discuss jurisdiction. Verna is helping John work on on the constitutional aspects of his charges and legal defense.
