Members of the Gidimt’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en took their fight against the coastal gas link pipeline on the road last month, traveling in a caravan across the country for nation-to-nation discussions and demonstrations.

Traveling to Ontario and Quebec, through the prairies and finally across BC, Wet’suwet’en hereditary leaders met with several nations to discuss their shared values and challenges when it comes to sovereignty, major industrial projects and dealing with provincial and federal governments.

“We saw communities completely surrounded by industry, water that wasn’t safe to drink,” said Na’Moks. We have such clean water and air here and we need to keep it that way,”

The tour ended with a week of ceremonies on Gidimt’en territory and the opening of a new feast hall.
