Nôtinitowin tells the story of last year’s violent raid on Gidimt'en, and it has become a prominent symbol in the struggle: wheatpasted in the path of the pipeline, on the main access bridge to the land, and at the resistance camp itself.
Nôtinitowin depicts Chief Sleydo' as a bear, standing on the main access bridge beating a drum, her then-unborn child in her belly, speaking with the power of the land, of those unable to speak, and of her ancestors at her back. Salmon surround her, feeding everyone on all sides of the struggle.
beyon has been at Gidimt'en for over a month now with clan members, other Native kin, and allies blocking industry from drilling beneath the sacred Wedzin Kwa river. In the slide , Sleydo' stands with beyon at the cabin that's been constructed and occupied right on the intended drill site.
