The Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory.
Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km Trans Mountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law and jurisdiction and block access to this pipeline.
On April 19, 2020, three white men and one white woman violently attacked the Tiny House Warriors Blue River camp. The men destroyed the memorial of red dresses for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, stole the truck of Kanahus Manuel and rammed it into a Tiny House. The drunk men verbally abused her and threatened her safety.
Just a month prior, over 100 human rights experts, policy analysis, lawyers and land defenders gathered in Secwepmec territory for a two-day human rights symposium. A delegation also traveled to the Tiny House Warrior villages in Blue River and Moombeam, Secwepemc Territory to learn more about how these land and water defenders struggle for land and self determination on the ground to protect their territory from the Trans Mountain Pipeline.
