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.

Each of the past two years, Lummi Nation tribal members have carved and transported totem poles thousands of miles to raise public awareness and strengthen opposition to the export of fossil fuels from the west coast of the United States and Canada.
Starting this Friday, the Lummi House of Tears Carvers, led by Master Carver Jewell James, will embark on their third journey with a new totem pole, which will be a gift to the Northern Cheyenne of Montana.
Working in close association with other tribal governments, environmental organizations and the faith-based community, these efforts have helped shape the public debate and understanding of what is at risk with the proposed fossil fuel export facilities and their transport by rail, ship and pipelines. 11:20 minutes (10.38 MB)
