Unist’ot’en Spring Work Camp 2023



Unist’ot’en Camp Needs Your Support!

Spring is Beautiful on the Yintah! The Unist’ot’en clan invite hard working souls to join them from June 5th to 26th for the annual Spring Work Camp!

Come for a minimum of 1 week, and help build new infrastructure for the healing programs! This year we’re working on the new solar array which will be powering the entire camp by winter, and if we get the right people, we’ll be finishing a major greenhouse project that will allow the Unist’ot’en to grow plants throughout the harsh northern winters. The Unist’ot’en Healing Centre has been operating at a steady pace with regular and essential programming for Wet’suwet’en people seeking healing from substance abuse and the effects of colonization. 

Builders, cooks, dishwashers, chainsaw operators, skilled trades folk and others just willing to get their hands dirty and work in solidarity with the Unist’ot’en on their sovereign territory are welcome.  Not sure if you have the right skill set? You might be surprised!  

Enjoy three hearty meals a day, make new friends, camp under the stars or in the cozy bunkhouse, embrace the feeling of a job well done, drink straight from the Wedzin Kwa, and jump in her cold flowing water to escape the midday heat. Resist the ongoing incursion of CGL and industry by keeping the Healing Centre going and give the Unist’ot’en some support.

Before applying to come to camp, the Unist’ot’en ask you to read the preparing for your visit page on their website and pay particular attention to the consent guidelines and guidelines for behaviour. Behaviour going against the guidelines will not be tolerated.

There is little to no risk of arrest at this time at camp. Although CGL continues to try to build their pipeline and the CIRG continue 24 hour surveillance, the Unist’ot’en are still actively running programming and cultural camps on their territory for Wet’suwet’en people, and invite you to join them in supporting this form of healing revolution.
