Unist’ot’en Camp

Having never sold or ceded their lands to Canada or British Columbia, the Unist’ot’en clan has resolved to stop fossil fuel pipelines from being built across their traditional territories without consent.

In the path of a government-backed “energy corridor,” intended to transport bitumen and hydraulically fractured gas to the Pacific coast, the clan has built cabins and a healing centre for Wet’suwet’en people.

I have written about and made documentaries on Unist’ot’en Camp for Al Jazeera America, AJ+, Ricochet, and Vice Canada.
