Deep Roots at Fairy Creek

Media zoomed in on civil disobedience at the Vancouver Island watershed after RCMP began enforcing a court injunction against protesters in May.

But The Tyee has been reporting on the blockade for over a year.

We've covered the ruling and reflected back on previous old-growth activism from decades past.

We had reporters on site as the blockades were ramping up and sounded alarms about restriction of media on the ground.

The story is complex and far from over. Dive deep to uncover the roots of Fairy Creek.

Bringing Reconciliation to Tragic Attention

The uncovering of unmarked graves from former residential schools continues to shake the country. And the country needs to be shaken.

We know the harrowing scars of these institutions. How the deep disregard of Indigenous people through colonialism created a genocide. How the settlers that spoke up against the status quo were not heeded.

Indigenous communities continue to live the pain but still manage to find hope. Powerful art and books evoke the horror, and Elders’ Oral Histories carry the weight.

The path towards reconciliation and healing is long. Follow us into our dark history to see its reality in the present.
