Please join us for an evening of inspiration, solidarity and action for the Peace Valley with Grand Chief Stewart Phillip!
The Peace Valley can provide fruits and vegetables for one million people - and abundant traditional harvests of Bull Trout, Moose, berries and medicinal plants for the region's First Nations. This is the land the B.C. government is rushing to flood for Site C dam – the biggest project in Canada that is being rammed through in the face of First Nations opposition and multiple court challenges.
Come and learn about Treaty 8 First Nations and Peace valley farmers’ strong stand for the Peace, and how we can support them and stop Site C. The keynote will be given by Grand Chief Stewart Phillip. Other speakers include the father-son team Art Napoleon and Julian Napoleon of Saulteau First Nations who will be discussing Site C's impact on Indigenous food harvesting lands. We'll also hear from Wendy Holm, the agrologist who testified before the JRP on the potential of Peace farmland, Sierra Club BC’s own Ana Simeon, and Susan Smitten of Raven Trust.
We are grateful for the sponsorship of the Faculty of Land and Food Systems – Indigenous Research Partnerships.
It’s going to be a great night with powerful and inspiring speakers! I hope to see you on the 29th!
