Unist’ot’en Camp, October 12, 2016
It was another wonderful pipe-free summer up at the Unist’ot’en yinta.
Work began on the second phase of our Healing Centre and for the first
time ever we were able to host an art camp for indigenous youth.
Connecting our youth to the land is a vital part of our culture, and we
relish these peaceful moments that allow us to build community. Read the rest of this entry

Thanks to everyone who responded to our Action Camp and Chevron PTP update. It is becoming clear that the situation here is moving toward an escalation point.
Today at one o’clock a low flying helicopter flew over the ridge line and crossed the river a couple kilomoters south of the bridge. It followed a route that corresponds to the path of the proposed PTP pipeline, then circled back and flew in a northern direction following the river toward Houston. They flew low enough to take photos of activity happening at bridge and our camp. Read the rest of this entry
