Indigenous people fighting for their lives and way of life brought a flotilla of canoes and kayaks to Paris.  With a strong message to defeat the REDD+ deal and to keep 80 percent of fossil fuels in the ground, tribes from around the world took to the waterways.

“We’re very, very concerned about the fact that reference to indigenous rights and human rights have been moved into an annex in the Paris text,” Cree activist Clayton Thomas-Muller says. “It means that they’ve been put aside to be discussed after the weekend.”
