6th Annual Unist’ot’en Spring Construction Camp – May 12 to 31


Volunteers Needed for Cabin Building Projects in May!

Spring camp runs from May 12 to 31.

With spring coming early to the north, plans are underway for new projects across Wet’suwet’en territory, including cabin construction for Wet’suwet’en people. Following the invasion of our territories by RCMP and industry, we are continuing to reoccupy our lands – helping our people reconnect with, reclaim, and protect our homelands.

We need people with carpentry, cooking, and camping skills, or a good attitude and a willingness to learn. “Many hands make quick work!”

The Unist’ot’en Camp is not a blockade, a protest, or a demonstration – it is a permanent, non-violent occupation of Unist’ot’en territory, established to protect our homelands from illegal industrial encroachments and to preserve a space for our community to heal from the violence of colonization. This year, Unist’ot’en volunteers will be working with other Wet’suwet’en clans to support Wet’suwet’en sovereignty.

We prefer volunteers who are able to spend two weeks or more supporting, but welcome any contribution of time and effort.

Please be prepared to work under the leadership and protocols of the Indigenous stewards of the Yintah. Supporters are asked to register here in advance.

Our spring camp will run from May 12 to May 31. Supporters are needed prior to and following the work camp as well, so if your schedule conflicts with our work camp dates, please apply regardless.

If you are not able to make it in person, consider sending a financial contribution to help cover our operational costs. DONATE HERE
