Today's the Day! Project launch at Roundhouse Jan 15, 2 - 4pm

By Katherine Dodds

Today  is the first event for  the Uts'am Witness Society since the project finished its work in Sims. Come see the premiere of our trailer, to promote the upcoming book.

This is the beginning new work,  to extend the reach of the project to all four directions. A part of this new work will be the book about the project which will be launching in 2013. We are also hoping to gather stories from those who were part of the past Uts'am Witness project.

Please join us from 2- 4pm Janurary 15, 2012  for a Coast Salish witness ceremony, the debut of our book trailer, and to find out more about the new work ahead!

NOTE: this is the project launch, not the book launch. Pre-sales of the book will support the Uts'am Witness Society. The book will be available in 2013.

What's Next?

We are starting to raise money to build a more interactive website, and to subsidize the printing in order to keep the price of the book accessible to everyone while having it printed in Canada in an environmentally friendly way.

How to help!

Pre-buy the book to support the project. Buy more than one! All proceeds to go the Uts'am Witness Society to develop the website and for eco-printing of the book

ABOUT THE UPCOMING BOOK
The book, which will be published by Douglas & McIntyre in 2013 will feature photographs by Nancy Bleck Slànay Sp’ákw’us and is written by Katherine Dodds with Chief Bill Williams telàsemkin-siyam and Nancy Bleck Slànay Sp’ákw’us.

When Witness began, the project was set in an ancient undeveloped rainforest, a contested part of the Squamish Nation’s territory that was slated for logging and designated by the province of BC as “Tree Farm License 38.” Today it is a protected part of the Squamish Nation under their 200 year Sacred Land Use plan. Uts’am/Witness spanned a decade, involved ten thousand people, and provided a model for non-violent social change through cross-cultural collaboration. It has produced a lasting legacy for models of land use and sovereignty for First Nations communities in BC.


TO SUPPORT THE PROJECT, YOU CAN PRE-BUY THE BOOK FROM THE HELLO COOL WORLD WEBSTORE. NOTE: the book will not be available until 2013.
