INDIGENOUS RIGHTS, SOVEREIGNTY, AND STEWARDSHIP
Indigenous peoples are on the forefront of almost every regenerative movement that relates to the natural world. Colonial systems have violently and more covertly tried to take everything from these communities, but have failed. Indigenous peoples have long nurtured and held – and continue to actively reclaim – their rightful territories, authority, and stewardship responsibilities. Settlers: show up as allies, accomplices, and co-resistors.

Columbia Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization working to protect and restore the waters of the Columbia River and all life connected to it, from the headwaters to the Pacific Ocean
Save Our Wild Salmon
We focus our efforts on the Columbia and Snake River Basin, where in the time of Lewis and Clark up to 16 million wild salmon returned each year. Today, as few as ten thousand salmon return home to the Snake River. Join our exciting national campaign to restore these endangered salmon and steelhead. By partially removing four dams on the lower Snake River we can restore the Pacific Northwest’s wild salmon and free-flowing rivers as vital economic engines for local communities

Will George Legal Defense Fund
Will George, keeper of the Watch House and spokesperson for Protect the Inlet, was charged with violating the injunction against Trans Mountain protestors on February 3rd, 2021. This charge is clearly an attempt to silence one of our frontline leaders, just as Trans Mountain tries once again to step up construction after a series of delays (including a month-long pause due to safety concerns on their worksites).
Tiny House Warriors
The Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km TransMountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline.
The Braided Warriors is a group of Indigenous youth warriors in səl ̓ ilw̓ ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam) territories defending the land and the people from capitalist colonial violence and working closely with Tiny House Warriors.
Many of our members dedicate their entire lives to the grassroots work we do everyday towards defending our territories from resource extraction projects such as TMX, the impositions of colonial law and systematic racism by the crown on our territories, as well as healing ourselves and our kin from the trauma that the crown corporation of canada’s legacy has left for the indigenous peoples of our beautiful turtle island since first contact.
