Crystal Lameman
Beaver Lake Cree Nation, Treaty No. 6


Crystal Lameman is from the Beaver Lake Cree Nation, Treaty No. 6, Alberta. She is the Climate and Energy Campaigner for Sierra Club Canada and is a fellow of the Indigenous Environmental Network.

Crystal uses her formal academia (two university degrees) but most importantly her Indigenous ways of knowing and being to articulate the damaging impacts of industrialization and resource extraction on her homelands. Beaver Lake Cree Nation launched legal action in 2008 aimed at protecting their traditional lands and treaty rights. Lameman cites this action as an example of how First Nations people can assert their rights while offering a solution.
