Making history with Tsilhqot’in’s Russ Myers Ross
Chief Russ Myers Ross saw his Nation through one of the most historic periods of the past century. Elected chief at just 30 years old, Ross witnessed the Supreme Court’s recognition of Tsilhqot’in Title, helmed the largest Indigenous-led solar project in the province, successfully defeated Taseko Mines in court, and was present for the exoneration of chiefs in the Canadian Parliament – a act of redress that was 100 years in the making. Ross illuminates the struggles and joys of working for his community at a time when Indigenous sovereignty is on the rise. A must-listen: be inspired by Ross’s vision to lift people up while keeping grounded in ancestral customs and laws.
