A big thank you to Beyond Boarding for what they did here in Kingcome. A mural and film to honour our fight against Fish Farms that will sit for our future generations to know about our resistance.

SACRED STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM

Beyond Boarding helped launch a land based education program in Iskut in the Fall of 2017. The program comprised of overnight trekking, canoeing and camping trips that facilitated intergenerational interactions for activists and youth (aged 8-14). The location of the trips was premised on bringing youth to “at risk” areas of their territory. The program helped youth become active and build connection to the natural landscapes around them, while also inspiring stewardship in protecting the land, air, water and animals.
