WET'SUWET'EN HOMELAND SECURITY

The fight to ensure our actions reduce rather than fuel the climate crisis; the fight to end police brutality; the fight to underscore Indigenous sovereignty—these fights belong to all of us. And, amidst this time of great upheaval, there is hope.

This summer’s Peace & Unity Summit is hosted by the Office of the Wet’suwet’en, in support of the land defenders who continue to uphold Wet’suwet’en law in the face of police violence and Coastal Gas Link’s fracked gas pipeline.

We celebrate the solutions and alliances—and hope—that can win these fights. Already we have seen victories against extractive industries that destroy our ecosystems and communities. We have successfully fought against the Enbridge pipeline, and prevented fracked methane in the Sacred Headwaters.

But with two more pipelines now proposed through Wet’suwet’en territory, we need to scale up our efforts. We will uplift past successes and explore how they were achieved—and what we can learn in the continued fight to protect Wet’suwet’en land.

Speakers include representatives from 12 Nations, including Gitanyow, Gitxsan, Gwich’in, Haida, Haisla, Nuxalk, Secwepemc, Tla-o-qui-aht, Tlsiamin, Tsleil-Waututh, Tsimshian, Yupuk Nations.

Panels include conversations about

We, the Wet’suwet’en have inhabited and governed our Yintah – our lands and waters – according to our laws and traditions, since time immemorial.

Our relationship to our Yintah through our governance system is ancient and profound.

Our inherent rights and title and our legal authority over these 22,000 square kilometres of lands and waters have never been ceded, surrendered, sold or relinquished in Treaty or in any other way.

As was proven in the Supreme Court of Canada ruling of December 11, 1997, in the historic Delgamuukw/Gisday’wa court case, our status as a Hereditary Nation has not been extinguished.

Whereas:

We, the Wet’suwet’en now come together in Peace and Unity with our fellow Indigenous peoples, leaders, and supporters of all walks of life and professions to demand:
