Coyote Camp Occupying CGL Drill Site is digging in for winter
On September 25th 2021, Gidimt’en Checkpoint organizers moved in to occupy Coastal GasLink’s drill site on the banks of the Wedzin Kwa River. The occupation camp was named Coyote Camp in honour of the coyote families that can be heard singing at night at the river. Since then, there have been numerous invasions with police with two arrests, but now on Day 23, Coyote Camp stands strong and is digging in for the coming winter.

"We knew at some point they would try to drill under Wedzin Kwa and we've always know that it's not allowed. It's too sacred for us and too important to ever let that happen."

-Sleydo' Gidimt'en Checkpoint Spokesperson

Lihkt'samisyu Chiefs Deactivate Coastal Gaslink Excavator And Tells CGL to Leave the Territory
On October 17, Lihkt'samisyu chiefs Dsta'hyl and Tse'besa took action, as Coastal Gaslink workers continue to trespass on Wet'suwet'en territory in violation of Wet'suwet'en laws. Coastal Gaslink was instructed to remove all equipment from Lihkts'amisyu territory immediately, or it will be decommissioned and seized by the Likht'samisyu clan in accordance with our laws.

Coastal Gaslink has been damaging wetlands that flow to Parrot Lake, where we have reclaimed a traditional village site and established a community. We will not stand by while our territories are destroyed.

Wet'suwet'en laws protect our lands and our people, to the benefit of all. Our clan, and our government, is the highest authority on our sovereign lands.

Delegation of Supporters from Haudenosaunee territory arrive at Coyote Camp 
"'You can’t push the Wet’suwet’en around!' and 'This is Chief Woos’ territory!' can be heard as our Haudenosaunee relatives send the RCMP retreating from their daily harassment patrol at Coyote Camp.

"We are so honoured to have our relatives here answer the call. To stand with us against colonial greed and corruption. The Six Nations Confederacy and the Wet’suwet’en have familial ties and children who’s futures we are fighting for together.

“We can hear their war cries. Which is a beautiful sound. The allyship is beautiful.”
