Land Back: A webinar with Nuchatlaht Leaders!
Join us on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 5 pm PT/ 8pm ET online to hear from the Nuchatlaht people about their groundbreaking title case, their strong and sustainable vision for their lands and waters and how you can help. Speakers will include Nuchatlaht House Speaker Archie Little and other leaders from the community, as well as the Nations’ lawyer, Jack Woodward.
The Nuchatlaht Nation are fighting in the supreme court to get their land back through a groundbreaking title case! Their hahoulthee (territory) includes a large part of Nootka Island off the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island which has been impacted by industrial logging and fishing for almost a century at the hands of the BC government and giant corporations.
Despite passing legislation around the rights of Indigenous peoples and promising to do better, the BC government has continued to throw up obstacles and fight against the Nuchatlaht.
Public support is key to winning this precedent-setting case. Come see what you can do to help this tiny nation in their fight for sovereignty.
