Guardian of the Watchhouse
When it became apparent that the government of Canada was bent on pushing dirty oil from the Alberta tar sands through the coast of British Columbia and onto China, I rallied alongside fellow advocates to support the courageous stand of the Tsleil Waututh (slay-el wah-tooth) First Nations. I traveled to the Musqueam Squamish First Nations community, the site where the pipeline was set to cut straight through and undermine the waters, ancestral lands, livelihoods, and safety of everyone who lived there. Will George helps to spearhead this resistance, a self-proclaimed warrior and watchman who was unjustly arrested for standing up to the construction of the pipeline.
Portions of the proceeds from the sale of this print will be used to support the legal defense of the Tsleil Waututh in their battle to protect their home and people.
