October 13-17, Heiltsuk Nation raised the first Big House to be built on the central coast of B.C. in 150 years. To celebrate, RAVEN has joined forces with our amazing community to try to raise $10k for the legal challenge that, though launched in the wake of the Nathan E. Stewart disaster, stands to strengthen Heiltsuk sovereignty and establish a legal precedent — that of aboriginal title to the seabed and foreshore.
Will you join the RAVEN community in donating, so we can collectively make a significant contribution to Heiltsuk Nation at this auspicious time? Potlatches have always been about powerful alliances and deep generosity. Let’s give big and raise Heiltsuk Nation as they break ground for future generations!
