Secwepemc Warriors Build Tiny Houses in Path of Kinder Morgan Pipeline
VICE: Can you tell me how and why you got into building these tiny homes?
Kanahus Manuel: This idea began when I was down at Standing Rock. Some people from Portland built a tiny house for me and my freedom babies. They built the whole thing in just two-and-a-half days, with solar panels and everything so we could power six laptops. When I came home, I got some other guys from the camp to take it apart and move it to a reserve where they were resisting Keystone XL.

"This group of dedicated activists say that building the tiny homes is not only an act of resistance, but also of creation, building something beautiful, to create hope and create homes for the community." http://www.livingbiginatinyhouse.com/tiny-house-warriors/
