Help support the Ma’amtagila
The Ma’amtagila are proud members of the Kwakwaka’wakw peoples and their territory bridges so-called northern Vancouver Island and the mainland. In April 2021, they launched a legal challenge to stop the illegal treaty negotiations currently taking place on their territory. They have already taken steps to assert their jurisdiction according to Kwakwa̱ka̱ʼwakw Potlatch Law.
Recently, BC Timber Sales authorized logging of old-growth forests in Ma’amtagila territory and has plans to auction the entire territory which includes further areas of old-growth cedars and Culturally Modified Trees – all without the consent of the Ma’amtagila.
“I am sick and tired of government agencies and branches completely ignoring our rights and sovereignty,” says Chief Makwala (Rande Cook).
The time is now to support Rande and the Ma’amtagila in their fight to have their existence acknowledged by Canadian and B.C. governments so that they may intentionally steward their land and culture.
