Video: Keepers of the Coast -Trailer

by Aaron Heidt, Vimeo, June 2016

Keepers of the Coast takes a close look at how the Kitasoo/Xai’Xais, Heiltsuk, Nuxalk, and Wuikinuxv Nations are stewarding our marine territories.

Full length release coming June 30th.

The central coast of British Columbia is one of the most spectacular and biologically rich places left on the planet – where ancient temperate rainforest intertwines with the living Pacific. The Heiltsuk, Kitasoo/Xai’Xais, Nuxalk and Wuikinuxv who have inhabited the central coast for thousands of years have joined forces, forming the Central Coast Indigenous Resource Alliance, otherwise known as CCIRA. Using a combination of traditional knowledge and science, the nations are committed to upholding their indigenous laws and stewarding these marine resources in a manner that sustains their cultures and ensures intact ecosystems, healthy communities and local sustainable economies, now and into the future.

    This is a wonderful example of how Native folk are the first environmentalists. They lived here for over 10,000 years (U.S. and Canada) and managed the environment very well. They were careful to not take more than they needed. As this video states — they think to generations ahead and plan accordingly. They recognize that nature requires balance.
