Native Americans: Canadian Pipeline Will Destroy Our Livelihood

 


Native American advocates are protesting against the controversial Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in Canada that they say violates the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Dana Wilson and Troy Olsen from the Lummi Indian Nation, who according to their website are “the original inhabitants of Washington’s northernmost coast and southern British Columbia,” tried to enter Canada’s National Energy Board proceedings on the project, but as only one was allowed in they decided to mount their objection from their Washington reserve this week.
