Description

This is a photograph of an Indigenous man holding a sign that says "No Indians beyond this point" on land that is claimed as traditional territory of the Secwepemc nation. The territory in question is called Skwelkwek'welt, and is the high alpine traditional hunting and gathering territory of the Secwepemc nation. Developers purchased this land from the Government of British Columbia in order to develop the Sun Peaks skiing and golfing resort. A contentious battle over the land followed.
