Gail Baikie and Libby Dean

Year of publication:


This fact sheet gives an overview of the Claiming Our Place project, which gathered local women in Happy Valley – Goose Bay, Labrador (NL) to build relationships across cultural lines and around the shared impacts introduced by the Lower Churchill River hydroelectric development project. The project used a participatory action framework alongside the Creative Action Circles process (developed from Indigenous knowledge and practices) to uncover women’s concerns and then express these concerns using artistic means.
