Tiny House #5

I don't know if you remember the last two weeks of October, but the weather was spectacular. Not one drop of rain fell. it was warm, not hot, perfect for outdoor work. This is when University of Victoria students and many others who support indigenous resurgence built Tiny House #5 for the Tiny House Warriors. The Tiny House Warriors are a group of Secwepemc people whose mission is to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from crossing unceded Secwepemc territory. This group is led by Secwepemc mother, birth keeper and traditional tattoo artist Kanahus Manuel. The plan is to build ten tiny houses and place them strategically along the Trans Mountain pipeline route and to assert Secwepemc law and jurisdiction. Currently, there is a new village being established in Blue River on Highway 5.
