Warrior Life by Pam Palmater
Molly Wickham on Gitdimt'en Yintah Access
In Episode 42, we get to hear from native woman warrior, Molly Wickham of the Wet'sewet'en Nation in what is now known as British Columbia. She speaks to us about the situation on her territory and why it is so important that the clans of her Nation occupy their territory and defend it from pipelines. She talks about Gitdimt'en Yintah Access and also the occupation at Unist'ot'en.
