Uni’stot’en Healing Centre in LNG pipeline path. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTNKathleen MartensAPTN NewsThe Unist’ot’en Healing Centre stands among the tall trees more than two hours drive southeast of Smithers, B.C.An impressive three-storey complex surrounded by outbuildings.“It’s a healing facility – not a protest camp,” said spokeswoman Freda Huson, who lives here with her husband and hereditary Chief Smogelgem (Warner Naziel).A healing centre that just happens to be in the path of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline that will carry natural gas from northeastern B.C. to tanker ships waiting at the Port of Kitimat to sail to Asian markets.When LNG Canada announced the $40-billion pipeline approval in October, it said it had unanimous support from all northern B.C. First Nations.But the hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en Nation are opposed – even though their elected band council has endorsed the project.“We don’t want their money,” said Chief Na’Moks (John Ridsdale).“We’ve stripped the names from three female hereditary chiefs for supporting the pipeline. A name is more important than money.”(Hereditary chiefs of Wet’suwet’en Nation in northern B.C. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)Ridsdale speaks for one of five clans that comprise the nation made up of 22,000 square kilometres of territory between Burns Lake and Kitimat.It’s a stunning terrain, dotted with snow-capped mountains and pristine waterways.Ridsdale and the other chiefs, wearing traditional regalia, are showing their support today.They must pledge to respect the centre’s ways before being allowed to pass a high wooden gate studded with barbed wire.They then sit down to a lunch of fish caught in the Morice River just steps from the front door.They meet two male band members here to detox from substance abuse.“Once people are strong they want to reconnect to the land and protect the territory,” said Huson, who has lived here for 10 years.“You can’t stand up if you’re oppressed; people come here to get decolonized.”One of those men is on video posted to the group’s Facebook page turning back officials from TransCanada Corp.(Officials from TransCanada Corp. were turned away. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)It’s a peaceful rejection but the company will be back – TransCanada has to clear land for the pipeline it plans to begin constructing in the first quarter of 2019.And, sure enough, TransCanada filed an injunction Nov. 27 saying it would try to enter the camp again on Dec. 10.But the Wet’suwet’en believe fossil fuel will poison the land, kill the fish and sicken the wildlife.“The sound of stuff going through the pipe is going to disturb the moose and mountain goats,” said Ridsdale, who noted 23 per cent or about 190 kilometres of the pipeline would run through Wet’suwet’en territory.“That’s about 190 kilometres too much.”APTN Investigates was the first to be allowed access to the camp. Watch Rob Smith’s story here: DefianceRidsdale is proud of their opposition despite the rift it has caused within his community.But he doesn’t criticize other nations – only Wet’suwet’en members who have accepted “millions of dollars in mutual benefit agreements.”“They’ve dirtied their blankets,” he said of the ceremonial shoulder mantles chiefs wear. “That’s greed.”TransCanada said 20 bands along the pipeline route have given their blessing after six years of meetings.Only the hereditary Wet’suwet’en chiefs refused to participate, the company said.(Chief Councillor Crystal Smith of Haisla Nation. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)The neighbouring Haisla Nation also wants to help its hurting people.And use pipeline money to do it.Chief Councillor Crystal Smith said they will build a healing centre with LNG funds.“We want opportunity for our people,” she said standing on the shore of the Douglas Channel.“An opportunity for programming to heal from that past trauma like residential school.”Haisla territory includes the coastal shoreline where TransCanada is dredging to deepen the port to accommodate big ships, which will carry the cargo after it has been liquefied at a new plant to be built here.LNG will set up shop next to Rio Tinto’s aluminum smelter at Kitimat.“That was an opportunity we weren’t a part of,” said Smith, tilting her head towards the smelter’s exhaust plume rising above the thick forest.“It’s a meaningful partnership this time, with environmental standards. LNG treated us like the rightful landowners.”(Home on Haisla Nation.
