We couldn’t be more excited for the launch of Lha yudit’ih We Always Find A Way: Bringing the Tŝilhqot’in Title Case Home by Lorraine Weir with Chief Roger William at Massy Arts Society! Join Lorraine Weir and Chief Roger William as they share this incredible and important book which has been eight years in the making.
Lha yudit’ih We Always Find a Way is a community oral history of Tsilhqot’in Nation v. British Columbia, the first case in Canada to result in a declaration of Aboriginal Rights and Title to a specific piece of land. Told from the perspective of the Plaintiff, Chief Roger William, joined by fifty Xeni Gwet’ins, Tŝilhqot’ins, and allies, this book encompasses ancient stories of creation, modern stories of genocide through smallpox and residential school, and stories of resistance including the Tŝilhqot’in War, direct actions against logging and mining, and the twenty-five-year battle in Canadian courts to win recognition of what Tŝilhqot’ins never gave up and have always known.
We are tremendously grateful that sχɬemtəna:t Audrey Siegl (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) will be conducting a Welcome for this event.
Attendance is free. Registration is required. For more information and to register, click here.
