“Lubicon” is inspired from the struggle of the Lubicon Cree of the Peace River District of northern Alberta who have been fighting for land since the government promised them a reservation prior to the second world war. They are one of the few tribes of native people who were not included in a treaty signing, and have been given little in exchange for their traditional hunting ground, save a few welfare cheques. Hunting is no longer possible as the wildlife has been chased away by oil exploration and development. TL
