REV On Air: Protecting Our Waters & Indigenous Rights with Lisa Wilson of Salmon Defense
This podcast episode is a part of the REV x Farmer’s Footprint Regenerative Podcast Series!
Today in the third episode of our regenerative podcast series in collaboration with Farmer’s Footprint, we talk to Lisa Wilson of Salmon Defence, Lummi Indian Business Council and Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission. Through life-long dedication to her tribe, the Lummi who are the original inhabitants of Washington’s northernmost coast and southern British Columbia, Lisa has witnessed the evolution and downfall of the annual migrations of salmon which the Lummi have relied on for centuries for survival and their cultural practices. Lisa gives us a down to earth and intimate perspective of what’s it’s like to rely on the land but witness it being stripped away by salmon farming and lack of attention from governmental bodies.

“It’s been proven that if our treaty rights are protected, and we’re able to be on the forefront of that movement, that it will protect the rest of the greater society, it will protect the orcas. Because that’s the thing, if they honour the treaty and the treaty rights, everything else will be taken care of because we will be able to bring our resources back. So that’s where I’m hopeful.”

Kiki Milk was started in the founders kitchen out of necessity because there was no milk they felt comfortable giving their son. Frustration turned into curiosity, and they turned that into action. Thus Kiki Milk was born! Inspired by the abundant coconuts on the island of Kauai, Kiki Milk is a plant-based milk for kids and adults alike. Delicious, rich in plant-based protein, contains essential fatty acids for brain health, has bioavailable calcium for bone health, and is naturally sweet from organic oats and organic coconut sugar. Kiki Milk works with one of the first Certified Regenerative organic companies to source their coconut sugar for their line. Coconuts are inherently grown regeneratively with multiple other crops being able to be sustained and grown next to and among the coconut trees. Kiki Milk has three different organic and plant-based milks along with a delicious nut butter.
