The #PeoplesPremiere is off to a great start! r1 ...


We’re floored by your support.

In the week since the launch of our Heiltsuk crowdfunding campaign, we’ve had an outpouring of support from across the country and around the world. Though remote and tiny, the community of Bella Bella and its heroic Indigenous citizens have captured the imagination of people as far away as Wales, in Ottawa and Surrey, and all up and down the coast from the San Juan Islands to Tofino to Haida Gwaii.

Just this week, we raised $5k for the campaign thanks to an SFU hosted event in Vancouver, online fundraising pages and generous donations from you, PAOV.

We're sending you all baskets of spring salmonberries!!

Now, people are stepping up for the #PeoplesPremiere of #RavenPeopleRising. Screenings of the short documentary are happening all over the place, and online fundraising is happening virtually everywhere! Check out our website for events near you and to sign up.

The #RavenPeopleRising documentary has screened a dozen times: our goal is to have 100 screenings and reach 5,000 people with the hopeful message and powerful call to action in this film. This is how we build a force of support behind the Heiltsuk Nation: bringing people together to get informed, to donate, and take action.

Big Oil, newly empowered by a win by the UCP in Alberta, is eyeing the Pacific Coast as a fossil fuel export superhighway. The Heiltsuk have already pushed one major project out of the Great Bear Rainforest, and now they are laying the legislative framework to protect the ocean itself from ill-suited development.

After warm initial events in Seattle, Nanaimo, and Duncan BC, we’re ready to go big.

Let’s build the movement to #StandwithHeiltsukCoastHeroes together!

Thanks for all you do,

Ana Simeon and Andrea Palframan
