Lorraine Weir and Chief Roger William were interviewed in the Williams Lake Tribune about the making and impact of Lha yudit’ih We Always Find A Way: Bringing the Tŝilhqot’in Title Case Home.
From the article:
“The initial launch of the book took place Tuesday, Nov 7 at the Xeni Gwet’in Community Hall in Nemiah Valley. A second launch was held the next day in Williams Lake at the Tsilhqot’in National Government offices on South Lakeside Drive.
In Nemiah Valley, Roger’s mother, Eileen William, was the first to receive a book. A buzz filled the air as more community members arrived to accept their copies. Julianna Lulua beamed as she leafed through the pages. She was on the bus to Ottawa with her late husband Ubill Lulua in November 2013 to attend the Title Case hearings at the Supreme Court of Canada.”
