Salish Coast LIVE Winter Gathering – Stop Kinder Morgan Solidarity Night on Fri Feb 21, 2014

A gathering to honour Tsleil-Waututh culture, land & water in the face of a proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion.

Hosted by the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust, the two-day Salish Coast LIVE Winter Gathering brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to learn about the issues and understand the threats to the Tsleil-Waututh Nation’s Territory and culture. The federal government and National Energy Board are attempting to fast-track the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. A Tribe Called Red (the most popular Indigenous music group in Turtle Island) comes to Tsleil-Waututh to stand with us to protect our Territory from tarsands threats.

The Winter Gathering also helps inspire connections between different Coast Salish Nations (from Tsleil-Waututh to Sto:lo to Tswwassen) as well as Urban Indigenous people, non-Indigenous, environmental groups and other opponents of Kinder Morgan. With many speakers the participants over the two days will learn more about Coast Salish People’s spiritual, cultural, and legal rights to the Salish Sea.

Part I: Launch Event – Friday, Feb 21, 6-10pm, Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre, East Hastings.

An evening launch event to connect to the language, culture, land and waters of the Tsleil Waututh and Coast Salish Peoples. This will feature a light dinner, plus speakers and breakout sessions on building crosscultural alliances. Learn how settlers to Unceded Coast Salish Territory are standing as allies to defend the Salish Sea.
