News In Depth

Mon, 08/31/2015
For six years, the Unist'ot'en clan has maintained a camp to guard their traditional territory in what the Canadian State claims as northern "British Columbia."

The camp is located in a valley where several proposed fracked gas and tar sands oil pipelines would pass, and the camp's presence has thus far impeded their construction.

The Unist'ot'en are part of the Wet'suwet'en people, who occupy a large swath of unceded territory, whose aboriginal title has never been extinguished, and has even been affirmed by colonial Canadian courts.
