Elder Bob Campbell, Sinixt Nation

(Note: the ridge where this video was taken two days ago is now on fire)


The Sinixt tribe live on both sides of the US/Canada border, but are wrongly registered as extinct. Although most valleys where their ancestors lived were flooded by the damming of the big lakes in the Colombia basin like the Kootenay, Arrow or Duncan, some of their pit houses remain and are excavated, prooving their ancient occupation of the territory. The Sinixt have maintained their language and tribe although not officially recognized. They sent a call for help to save their homeland from large logging and mining plans.


A dozen of us Rainbows answered their call and joined the Sinixt on Perry Ridge, above Slocan Valley. Great connexions were created to save sacred lands. We stand together for Mother Earth. Warriors of the Rainbow unite and rise up!...

On July 16 2013 -- Two RCMP officers, one verified as being from the RCMP "E Division" Major Crimes Section and two Ministry of Natural Resources enforcement officers come to "talk" to occupants of the Sinixt encampment. They said that they could have flown in and buzzed the camp with helicopter flyovers and brought out the parabolic microphones and telephoto video camera's and what not but instead they just came to "talk." We asked Why? The RCMP inform us that anyone blocking the road will be charged with mischief under the Criminal Code of Canada.

We informed all the officers of the Sinixt extinction status (which they were already well aware) and of Canadian human rights law and Canada's legal obligations to conventional international law. The Ministry enforcement officers served Notice of Trespass on Crown Land Orders to "occupants of Sinixt Nation". The Sinixt lock on the gate was removed and left open with a new lock put in place.

Police and enforcement officers issue a Notice of Trespass on Crown Land to Sinixt camp. Please see our website for the Sinixt letter disputing the Trespass Order.
