Festival Afloat – A Gallery of 2022 events!

We want to give a BIG THANKS to SCOUT and Guayaki for sponsoring this year’s festival afloat! We would also like to thank to everyone who came out and floated with us. This year’s concerts were in support of Gitxaala and Heiltsuk Nation’s legal challenges. Gitxaała Nation is taking B.C. and several “free miners”, including Global Mineral Resources Corporation, to court over mineral claims in their territory that were registered without notification, consultation or consent. Heiltsuk Nation is taking Kirby — an oil shipping company — Canada, and British Columbia to court. The case focusses on damages from the  catastrophic Nathan E. Stewart spill that spilled toxic fuels into Heiltsuk’s marine harvesting areas.

Thanks to you we’ve raised $50K for both of their legal challenges! Here are a few photo highlights:
