20 October 2017 (VICTORIA) — This Saturday, Victoria residents will be out with hammers and hard hats building a tiny house that will eventually be placed directly in the path of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline.
The tiny house is being built in solidarity with the Tiny House Warriors, a grassroots group composed of members of the Secwepemc Nation, who are building 10 tiny houses on their unceded territory to resist Kinder Morgan’s pipeline. Two houses have already been built. The house Victoria residents are building is in solidarity with their efforts.
The Tiny House Warriors caught national attention last month. The tiny homes are not only a symbol of resistance to the pipeline but also a symbol of hope and resilience and will eventually provide housing and reconnection with the land for members of the Secwepemc Nation.
WHAT: Blessing ceremony with Virgil Sampson from the Tsartlip Nation, at 10:00 a.m. followed by construction of a third tiny house being built in solidarity with the Tiny House Warriors.
WHO: Victoria residents led by Bobby Arbes, representation from the Tsartlip Nation and volunteers.
WHEN: Saturday, October 21st and Sunday October 22nd 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: 2284 Bukin Place, in the Highlands, W'sanec traditional territory.
DETAILS: There will be a blessing ceremony with Virgil Sampson of the Tsartlip Nation, at 10:00 a.m.
