MLI has launched an ongoing series, titled "Indigenous Prosperity at a Crossroads," and features interviews with Indigenous people involved in the natural resource economy, particularly the oil and gas sector. This series explores beyond the headlines and political conversations about the ways in which Indigenous peoples are involved in the natural resource economy and the future of Indigenous participation in the oil and gas sector.

In this interview, MLI Munk Senior Fellow Ken Coates is joined by Estella Peterson, a member of Cowessess First Nation and heavy equipment operator, as she discusses her career in the oil and gas sector, Indigenous reconciliation, and economic prosperity.
