This chapter investigates the impact of non-human agency within the contested energy spaces of the Canadian North. By analysing the aftermath of “The Beast”—the devastating Fort McMurray wildfire of 2016—the author gives an account of the great impact natural events might have on societal relations, triggering developments in the relationship between government and Indigenous communities that in the case of Wood Buffalo have been crucial, but subject to inertia for decades.
