Plans to organize Northern First Nations Alliance

The Hereditary Chiefs and House Leaders of the Lax Kwa’laams Band have established a camp on Lelu Island to prevent work from beginning on a proposed LNG project.

The island is home to Flora Bank, an important ecological site for salmon and other fish and wildlife.

Ken Lawson, the Tsimshian House Leader says they’re not opposed to development, but those developments must protect the Skeena River and salmon spawning habitats.

They’ll be meeting with Premier Christy Clark this week, along with hundreds of other First Nations leaders in Vancouver.

There are also plans to organize a Northern First Nations Alliance with the Tsimshian First Nation, Gitxan First Nation, Wetsuweten First Nation, Treaty 8 First Nations, and the Council of Haida Nations.

  1. Headline is very misleading. Story is mostly about Lelu protest and, then, when this supposed Alliance is mentioned, it doesn’t say who is making these plans.

  2. Kala Ks’ye’en (river of mists) –to the Tlingit our northern neighbours called it -Jiin He’en– to the new generations it is called -“the skeena river”

  3. Sm’gigyet Yahaan -Gitwilgyots(people of the kelp) –Gispwudwada ( they use killerwhale ,as there main crest)–Tsm’syen (people inside ,the river of mists) –occupying there –Lax Yuup( land/ground/territory) –exerting there –Gatgyet (power and authourity,to manifest there own destiny) –re -eststablishing –Ayaaw’k ( ancestral-matriarchal law) — it is a responseabilty –inherent in our laws ,to not let ,things go to ruin and protect future generations –Waalb(house) –leader ship include –Sim’oogit –Sim’oogit’m Waalb–Mans Leka’gigyet –Mans Waalb
