Both plain-speaking and plainly felt, with a welcome prioritisation of First Nations perspectives.

The Issue with Tissue - a boreal love story
The Issue with Tissue - A Boreal Love Story documents the little-known, largely untold story of the boreal forest and the Indigenous Peoples who call it home. It's a story about how protecting and conserving the boreal is an existential imperative and that unfettered extractive industrial exploitation of the few remaining wild spaces, including the boreal forest, must be stopped if life as we know it on Planet Earth is to be sustained. Told by the First Nations Elders and Leaders of the boreal, prominent scientists and conservationists, The Issue with Tissue creates a kind of talking circle that inspires our storytellers to speak with intimacy and candor about the issues confronting us all, sharing their enlightened, unified vision that the way forward lies in supporting and elevating Indigenous knowledge/stewardship in combination with the ages-old wisdom that can be found in the life of these forests and trees.
