Mi'kmaw Fishery Dispute Resources
The Atlantic-IMN has created a landing page with resources from news articles, donation options, and ways to support Mi'kmaw fishers and treaty rights during this time. These resources have been taken from numerous documents created by those who stand with the Mi'kmaw fishers of Nova Scotia. Much of this information was gathered from "Ways to Support Mi'kmaq Treaty Rights and Livelihood Fisheries".
We stand in solidarity with Mi'kmaq fishers from the region who are fishing under their treaty rights for a moderate livelihood.
