Oil and Gas Workers Go Solar with Louis Bull Tribe
Desmond Bull, a councillor with the Louis Bull Tribe, says, "As First Nations and Canadian citizens, we need to take care of each other, take care of the land and take care of future generations."
In the heart of oil-rich Alberta, Louis Bull Tribe now powers its daycare with solar energy. Together with Iron & Earth, Louis Bull helped train oil and gas workers with new skills for a renewable energy future.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism.
It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.
We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.
We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
