Eriel Deranger


Eriel Deranger, the young Communications Manager of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation of Alberta, Canada, is one of the most powerful and tireless activists working to resist the devastation caused by the fossil fuel industry’s immense extractive operations in Alberta’s “tar sands,” both locally to her people’s ancestral homelands in the boreal forest around Lake Athabasca downstream from the oil sands, and to the world community and the global biosphere already in the throes of climate change-induced cataclysms. Eriel has organized demonstrations and campaigns, initiated lawsuits, and traveled the world speaking to audiences, including at the UN, to defend her people’s right to survive and the fragile ecosystems and wildlife habitat of northern forests at risk of annihilation, as well as the very future of life on this planet.
