Wet’suwet’en Strong

First Nations leaders
Message from Dini Ze'Dsta'hyl
Between 1870 and 1905 the Wet’suwet’en had 3 National meetings in the community of Hagwilget. The meetings were to discuss a possible War with the white people who were accompanied with RCMP & Indian Agents who also forced us off of our lands. A local white shop keeper, who was a friend of many Wet’suwet’en, wrote letter to the government about our grievances. A Catholic priest came into the meeting begging our people not to go to War.
Over 115 years later we are still left with few options against a system which is racist, one-side, and extremely destructive to our lands.
