“Allies in Protecting the Environment:
First Nations and the Land”
by Paul General
First Nations are an important ally and key player in protecting the native plant species and habitat from urban sprawl and poor planning and the consequences of short-sighted political and development decisions.
Paul General is the general manager of the Six Nations Eco-Centre. The Eco-Centre is a leading aboriginal centre for ecological sustainability located near Brantford in Ohsweken, Ontario. The Centre’s mission focuses not only on the preservation and protection of the natural environment, but also on the opening of communications between Aboriginal and
non-Aboriginal communities.
