Mitchell Anderson explains how some Dene people have translated “Black lives matter” to Dene words meaning “we want Black people to live.” While sadly, sometimes we see Indigenous and Black justice in conflict, Indigenous justice and reconciliation can only take place in ways that ensure that Black lives matter.
