Nuchatlaht Nation Fundraiser
You're invited to a fundraiser for the Nuchatlaht Nation's title case at the Bateman Gallery organized by Sierra Club BC and the Wilderness Committee.
Nootka Island is a global gem stewarded by Mowachaht & Nuchatlaht governance since time immemorial. Western Forest Products and government mismanagement have done enough damage. The Nuchatlaht want their land back.
Come to learn and engage your networks. Come with intentions of making a contribution to Nuchatlaht’s work in nation building (small or large, now or later). We’re building a community of support; we’re growing the Friends of the Nuchatlaht.
Tyee Ha’wilth Jordan Michael and Archie Little, House-Speaker & Councillor will talk about their Ha-houlthee (lands, waters & resources) and governance.
Lawyer Jack Woodward will speak about his work on the Nuchatlaht title case, following suit from the groundbreaking Tŝilhqot’in court ruling from 2014.
Hear from Roger Dunlop, Regional Biologist of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council’s Uu-a-thluk Fisheries Program, about their Salmon Parks initiatives and vision.
Mark Worthing of Sierra Club BC will speak about the ancient rainforests of Nootka Island
A short film screening, other presenters, and an art auction featuring the work of local Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and photographers from Vancouver Island. There will be beverages (bring cash) and light snacks served.
Stories, artwork, photography, sculptures and short videos about Nootka Island will be shared.
