Stó:lō Signal Podcast Season 3

Season 3– Standing in Our Strength

In this season we will be talking with the people who work hard for our six communities and who are united in the desire to exercise our inherent right to govern our lands and territory. In the last year, we took off the mantle of the Stó:lō Xwexwílmexw Treaty Association and are now called the Stó:lō Xwexwílmexw Government. Meet some of the leaders, youth, business people, staff and more as we come together on this journey.

S03E01: Robes of Power: Putting on our Inherent Rights Blanket

“People take off their Indian Act hat and it’s quite dynamic and amazing to observe and be a part of. And then they put on their inherent right blanket, their robe of power. And then they start talking about, okay, now this is what we need to do together,” says Satsan in this far-reaching conversation with Grand Chief Steven Point. The pair spoke during our Light the Fire video series in April 2022 and we’ve condensed the talk a bit, but this podcast still covers so much including, our inherent right to self-government, the impact of the Indian Act, the push to revise the Canadian Constitution to recognize Aboriginal and Treaty Rights, Indigenous Rights Court Cases and more.

Guests:

Satsan, Herb George, Hereditary Chief of the Frog Clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation

Xwelíqweltel, Grand Chief Steven Point
