Grassy Narrows First Nation

We're gaining steam. With your help, RAN sent over 850 letters to Quadrant Homes CEO Peter Orser demanding the company respect indigenous rights and stop building homes from wood sourced from the traditional territory of Grassy Narrows First Nation.

Now, we're asking you to help save the livelihood of Grassy Narrows community members by welcoming friends and family in the local area into your home for a special movie night on Wednesday, June 14.

Director David Clement's "As Long As the Rivers Flow: The Grassy Narrows Blockade Story," tracks Grassy Narrows' continuing battle to save its native lands from two of the world's largest logging companies, Abitibi and Weyerhaeuser.

You'll see powerful footage of the clear-cuts on Grassy's land, the human blockade of logging trucks and the bold strength of a community coming together to ensure its survival. Catch the preview at:

We'll provide you with everything you need to screen the film in your living room, school, local community center or indy movie house.

Email Julie at to get everything you need. We’ll even include the popcorn!

Thank you,

Brant Olson
Old Growth Campaign Director

P.S. If you can’t make June 14th, no need to worry­we’re still here to help you plan a movie night whenever you wish. In the meantime, you can catch a sneak-peak of "As Long as the Rivers Flow," on
