      Indigenous Struggle against Colonialism

      Freda Huson
      Known as Chief Howihkat of the Wet'suwet'en people in British Columbia, Canada. Freda is the Unist'ot'en healing centre and a leading voice in defense of the unceded territory of the Wet'suwet'en people and against the Coastal Gaslink (CGL) pipeline

      With the impacts of climate change and toxic dangers from industrial projects based on greed and selfishness we have always expressed our concern that this is not just a challenge that my people need to overcome but a challenge that faces all of humanity. Together we must make a collective effort to provide an outcome that will allow for our survival as humans. We need to decolonize and heal the planet because if we don’t, she will make us pay. That is why we are making a Healing Center on our lands. It will be a place for healing and decolonization.

      We are challenging a terrorist state bent on forcing their projects through our lands with lies and deceit. They will try and break many of their own laws, ignore the Constitution and Charter, as well as mislabel oil pipelines as LNG pipelines to get their way. We will prevail because we are guided by prayers and ceremonies

      We are healers and teachers who uphold our responsibilities with the hopes, guidance, and blessings of our Warrior ancestors.
