Tsilhqot'in Mass Dance

Ceremony

Please gather with your friends and family and

learn the movements for the ceremony and the dance.

Tsilhqot’in (Chilcotin) people have spent three decades defending Fish Lake (Teztan Biny), Nabas and the upper Dasiqox (Taseko) watershed from the threat of a massive open-pit gold and copper mine. 

 

Thousands of non-indigenous people and countless organizations have stood with the Tsilhqot’in to oppose the mine.  In 2010 and 2013, two independent federal environmental review Panels investigated the mine proposal. 

 

 

After careful assessment and spending months hearing testimonies of locals and environmental scientists – the independent panels have condemned the proposal, TWICE!

 

YET THE FEDERAL & PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS AND THE COMPANY ARE STILL CONSIDERING THE PROJECT.
