New Video Released: Firearms Licencing from an Indigenous Perspective

(Edmonton) – BearPaw Media Productions, a department of Provincial Indigenous agency, Native Counselling Services of Alberta, is proud to present Laws of the Land: Firearms Licencing.

This video explores the traditional right of Indigenous peoples to hunt and firearms licencing requirements in Canada.

For Indigenous people, hunting is an integral part of family and community life and identity.

Today, Canadian law requires that anyone in possession of a non-restricted firearm needs to have a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). Laws of the Land: Firearms Licencing provides information about the process of obtaining a firearm licence for adults and minors, and shows how Indigenous Rights and Canadian Law can walk side-by-side in the name of safety.

Featuring quotes from the late Harold Cardinal, teachings from Cree Ceremonialist Fred Campiou and information from the RCMP-firearms program, this 16 min video is an excellent training/teaching tool for individual, school curriculum or community use.
