Seeking Free, Prior and Informed Consent

Anne and Kii’iljuus have returned from beautiful Gold River, B.C. where they shared their collaborative research proposal with The Nuu-chah-nulth Council of Ha’wiih Forum on Fisheries, a council that brings together 17 Hereditary Chiefs from up and down the west coast of Vancouver Island to work on initiatives related to ocean resource management.

Standing in Chief Maquina’s stunning big house, Anne and Kii’iljuus did a presentation where they shared the idea for Coastal Voices. The council passed a motion to support the project and they appointed Hereditary Chief Tom Happynook, Huu-ay-aht Ha’wiih, as a member of our Steering Committee.
