on behalf of Kachina Bige
 Langley, BC
Stand with Kwantlen is gearing up to build our Healing lodge in memory of our Kwantlen ancestors who did not survive residential schools, 60's scoop, small pox epidemics and have gone missing and murdered. With the love for our ancestors and our families we continue this work to heal the land and ourselves.

As you know in November 2016 it was anncounced by the federal government and Kinder Morgan the pipeline expansion would go through in September 2017. While in the age pf "post-reconciliation" where our people have not recovered both the land and ourselves we refuse to allow this encroachment to continue the movement of genocide on our lands and bodies. The Canadian government has made many claims about reconciliation but has not laid resititution.

Since Indigenous peoples have been made aware for over 150 years that imperialist (colonial) institutions are not sorry and do not wish to understand the mass of destruction their ship causes, we have and continue to dedicate ourselves to our people and the land, This lodge is one symbol of this love we have for our people and lands.

Come and volunteer for Stand with Kwantlen and show your love and share your skills. From our families to yours.

As it stands we have raised just about 3000 dollars to build the pithouse. We have asked around and originally we were going to have much of the wood donated and as of now that is no longer a possibility. Hence the cost has now risen to 15,000 including wood costs (40$ × 300= 12000 not including taxes and other building costs) please share widely and help us to stop the pipeline!

This is a large chunk of the money that was raised at the Musical Celebration for Kwantlen in Seattle at the Phinney Center yesterday, Sept 24. Although we did not raise all that we hoped to, it was a great occasion and we are proud to offer this gift. More of what we raised will come in the next 5-7 days.
