For all the living beings of the Wet’suwet’en Yintah, plants animals and humans, who have resisted the encroachment by the fossil fuel industry and state repression for over a decade of fierce resistance.
The illustration makes multiple references. The lynx’s pose mimics the cat drawn by Ralph Chaplin for Walker C. Smith’s Sabotage pamphlet (1913). He is stepping over a destroyed truck on a construction site of the Coastal Gas Link Pipeline during a large scale sabotage action in February of 20221. In the foreground there are different types of medicinal and local plants to the Yintah, including devil’s club and fireweed. In the background, we see the bridge over Wedzin Kwa river giving access to Unist’ot’en territory and parts of the healing centre behind the trees.
