A Very Merry Unist’ot’en Christmas! (Feat. David Suzuki)

Respect my culture!

Respect my culture!

The Unist’ot’en camp is a protest camp in northern BC, mostly led by anarchists and militant NGOs with a couple local indigenous people. Despite their claims to be fighting “colonialism”, the camp runs under Indian Act protocols- meaning, the money is paternalistically managed by their white “settler ally” NGO friends. The RCMP views them as an extremist group, and has been tracking them since at least 2010. Lots more detail here.

One of the mantras we’ve heard from Unist’ot’en and similar camps (assisted and funded through the same NGOs) is that colonial culture has and continues to disrespect and degrade sacred indigenous beliefs and practices. Unfortunately, Warner Naziel at the Unist’ot’en camp doesn’t walk the walk himself.
