Join Saul Brown, Reconciliation Negotiator with the Heiltsuk Nation, and Lisa Fong, Indigenous rights lawyer for a lively discussion on the future of the Pacific Coast and the powerful resistance and leadership of Indigenous Peoples in shaping our common future.

The Heilstuk Nation upholds an unbroken lineage of ancestral teachings that powerfully connect people to place. Witness how the Heiltsuk used the courts to stop Enbridge — backed by thousands of supporters via the Pull Together campaign. Just six months after that court victory, the Nathan E. Stewart ran aground in their Great Bear Rainforest home. Again, the Heiltsuk took to the courts. Now, in the wake of the devastating spill, the Heiltsuk are working to enshrine Indigenous governance of their homelands and waters into law. They are taking power back from regulators asleep at the wheel to ensure that the Pacific coast is protected for future generations. Their work will ensure marine safety for anyone who cares about the coast, the climate and future generations.

With deep implications for fish farms and orca whales, the Heiltsuk have launched the first ever aboriginal title claim for the seabed and foreshore: their historic case stands to set a powerful precedent for all coastal peoples.

The Nathan E. Stewart sank: but the Heiltsuk are rising.

Stunning footage combines with compelling storytelling to paint an urgent picture of a Nation poised to change the conversation about rights and reconciliation in this country.
