Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief Wi’hali’yte speaks out.

Also known in Canada as Theresa Tait Day

I want to first confess that we are sort of pirating a story for the greater good of the Wet’suwet’en people. All credits must go to RESOURCE WORKS and we are to some degree publishing their copyrighted article without free and prior consent. (pun intended)

Intimidation attempts are motivation to make it even more important to get the truth out to the Wet’suwet’en people. A story that must be told.

Our heart goes out to Theresa Tait Day who suffered a tragedy no mother or father should ever bear, without the support system the Wet’suwet’en Five keep telling the “Non Aboriginals” about.

VIDEO SERIES: Who speaks for members of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation? That’s at the heart of a controversy involving elected and hereditary representatives of the northwest British Columbia group. We asked Theresa Tait Day, a hereditary chief known as Wi’hali’yte, for her perspective.

Threats from Warner Naziel and his lawyer

Editors Note; First the duty to prove who owns and runs a website belongs to, goes beyond reason to believe as per the attached letter. Mr Kanis’s reply here does not constitute ownership or that the articles were written by Mr. Kanis

We suggest the author Dustin C. Gagnon makes a legal application to find out who the owner and author of this website are, and provide the legal grounds for making that request. As you may or may not know, it will require a court order to do so, and grounds to get that order will also be required by law. Continue reading

Moricetown Chiefs do not represent Wet’suwet’en clans and houses.

No we are not referring to a baseball team, the Witset Chiefs the “Wet’suwet’en Five” do not represent Wet’suwet’en clans and houses.

Let’s set the record straight, the “Wet’suwet’en Five” can say what they want to but it does not make them chief of the majority of Wet’suwet’en citizens.

The Society called “Office of Wet’suwet’en” pretend they are the hereditary chiefs of the 5 Wet’suwet’en clans, representing close to 4000 members, but the reality is the support is declining day by day, and a suggestion of 200 left over today supporters may well be exaggerated.

Proof they do not have much Wet'suwet'en support at all. Local support for anarchists is dwindling so fast, they now need to advertise for, and raise funds to bring in professional protestors.

Posting ads for help on the front-line has now become a normal event. The Wet’suwet’en Five continue to exploit the ignorance of other First Nations in regards to who the Wet’suwet’en Nation really is.

Commission Follows Up on Archaeological Complaint

Updated Mar 11th 2019 (see addendum)

Its high time for criminal charges and or the dismantling of the criminal camp at the Morice River. How much more do honest people have to endure at the hands of hoodlums.

The soils upon which the artifacts were found would not typically contain any such cultural artifacts and this was likely not their original location. However, a definitive determination on their exact location of origin can not be made.

I would suggest they check to see is the arrowheads originated from the Haida Gwaii, considering this was the intended field of study by Cody Merriman, one of the primary original 4 blockaders.

miracles do happen, just when you need them the most

The Office of the Wet’suwet’en operate under the false guise of Wet’suwet’en Law.

The Office of the Wet'suwet'en operate under the false guise of Wet'suwet'en Law.

The Office of the Wet’suwet’en operate under the false guise of Wet’suwet’en Law.

My name is Tsaskiy, and our Gitdimd’en clan has created a paper trail of our attempts to be consulted regarding how the “Wet’suwet’en Five” have been conducting business under the false guise of Wet’suwet’en Law.

They seem to have an identity crisis. On one hand, they owe their existence to the fact that Office of the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs operate under the Societies Act and have no seat in the feast hall to make decisions they are making to perpetuate their existence; but they want to be recognized as operating under the Hereditary system as well.

Wet’suwet’en Land Claims Overlap

Corrected (March 8th 2019)

BC Land Claims Overlap

The florescent green is Wet’suwet’en claimed lands. The orange is Carrier Sekani and also represent the Wet’suwet’en who refuse to be part of the Office of Wet’suwet’en’s claim. They are making their claims under the banner of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council.

The Office of the Wet’suwet’en have not been honest about a major impediment in settling land claims. They are refusing to concede or even negotiate land that other First Nations are claiming.

There are by legal definition two Wet’suwet’en claims in progress, the “Office of the Wet’suwet’en” and  the “Carrier Sekani Tribal Council” representing 90% of Wet’suwet’en land claims under the title of Wet’suwet’en First Nations”. See the map for detail.

Warner Naziel is not Chief Smogelgem

Updated; Mar 11th 2013 New reader submitted photos.
Our intention here is to prove and end the debate over who the present day Smogelgem is, and who it is not.

This debate has gone on far to long and its time for the Laksamshu to come clean on the truth. Cheif Mikhlikhlekh or better known as Johnny David testified that his father was Chief Smogelgem.

Not Cheif Smogelgem

Wrong headdress for Cheif Smogelgem, it should be grouse or killer whale.

From court transcripts we also know that quoting directly from court testimony.

New Violation of the Supreme Court Injunction Order near Hooligan’s Hotel

Updated Mar 22nd 2019

This does not look like remorse to me.

Update: Rob Alfred and was charged March 19th 2019 with violating the court injunction and must now appear in court with those charged during the illegal blockade. He must make his court appearance on April 15th, in regards to what occurred in this article.

I just wonder how much the Office of the Wet’suwet’en will claim as people officially speaking on their behalf. Looks like there is a very high probability of a massive return by the RCMP and a very likely heavier ongoing presence to insure those who interfere will be arrested.

Obviously the OFW is legally illiterate, only those breaking the law can be charged, unless evidence supports they are acting on behalf of others, then both become complicit, so until the OFW claim responsibility, it will be on the heads of the perpetrators.

I did note with humor that  Rob Alfred, who was blocking CGL was doing so, even though he was not even on his own territory. Speaking for another clans territory is sort of a no no there, based on their own rules. The location here is based on my best guess is about 25 Km west (crow fly) from the Hooligans Hotel.

Note also the death threats made by supporters of these hooligans. On a more interesting note, this brings us to another story, that the road through Wet’suwet’en territory is nearing completion.

In the words of Lucy Rose Verigin (nee Bazil)

Regardless of politics and political opinions, at a time when the Bulkley Valley is now so badly divided by a small group of self declared warriors, as elders in the Bulkley Valley, regardless of nationality, we all deserve respect, we are the people who built what this valley is today.

Sadly its being used by radicals to promote racism, in turn moderates start using racism, even more sad is they now have no shame in doing so publicly if your of the right skin color you can get away with it. Everyone else could face criminal charges for making racist comments in public.

Office of Wet’suwet’en – Blockades on the horizon?

Years ago, as in around 30 to 40 years ago the roots of historic land claims were forming, a lady of great distinction was finding her feet on the aboriginal scene, we now have a few articles where we have told parts of the story, inclusive of our belief that without Gloria George and her connections the end results could be quite different today. At that time we had Iona Campagnolo,  MP for the Skeena Riding, and who later moved up to the become 27th Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and the first woman to hold the office.

We had the following image that was black and white colorized so you could see what Chief Smogelgem’s regalia (Blanket) looks like. It bears the killer whale logo on both sides and a large sun made of shining sequins in top center, as does that of Gloria’s regalia.

The headdress in this case is grouse/killer whale.
