"What we do to the land, we do to ourselves.” 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, how it is being clear-cut for the manufacture of toilet paper and that protecting and conserving the boreal is an existential imperative.

Told by the First Nations Elders and Leaders of the boreal, leading scientists and activists, 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 elevating and supporting Indigenous knowledge/stewardship in combination with the ages old wisdom that can be found in the life of these forests and trees.
