The Wet’suwet’en have never ceded their territory, governing the Yintah (land) with their own laws for centuries—a fact conveniently overlooked by the Canadian government and several large fossil fuel companies, which continue to trespass, invade and occupy Wet’suwet’en lands to construct highly polluting natural-gas pipelines that stretch across several bodies of water, directly impacting the communities that surround them. Chronicling a decade of growing resistance to the forces that are hell-bent on exploiting their land, Yintah follows Howilhkat Freda Huson and Sleydo’ Molly Wickham on the frontlines of this fight. When their movement reaches a critical juncture in early 2020, several nations and their allies across Canada stand up in protest, defending land checkpoints and blocking train service across major cities, in an incredible display of solidarity. Yintah is an urgent call to climate justice action and an enraging indictment of the Canadian government and its partnerships as they continue to violate First Nations sovereignty in the name of profit.
