The Sutikalh Camp

Original Peoples, →Environment, →2010 Olympics

See video

On May 2, 2000, members of the St'at'imc nation and their allies established a permanent camp near Melvin Creek, located off Highway 99 between Mt. Currie/Pemberton and Lillooet, in the southern Interior region of BC.

Known as Sutikalh, the St'at'imc winter spirit of the area, the camp was set up to stop government and corporate plans to build a $500 million all-season ski and recreation resort in an untouched Alpine mountain area.

This footage was shot on June 20, 2009.

Can't Understand Spoken Words

Between the low voice, the music & background "banging" it's impossible to make out what this man is saying about the area.

Maybe if you lose the music and increase the volume of his voice, we could hear what he has to say. It's probably important.


Otherwise, perhaps somebody who knows what he said could write it up into an article?

Thank you for working on this very important cause.
