Beyond Boarding has set off on another adventure – 'Cycle to the Sacred' is a bike tour that aims to generate financial and social support for a group of indigenous land defenders, the Klabona Keepers, in the Sacred Headwaters of British Columbia.
The tour will take place over the course of one and a half months, between July and August. "Our goals with this tour are to raise $25,000 to stand in solidarity with the Klabona Keepers, to bring attention to the beauty and culture that pervades British Columbia and how it is at risk," says Beyond Boarding Co-Founder Landon Yerex.
Within hours of a June 26 Supreme Court of Canada decision confirming aboriginal title of the Tsilhqot’in First Nation, the Tahltan First Nation announced it too planned to launch an aboriginal rights and title claim.
Two clean energy agreements with the Province of B.C. will enable the Tahltan Nation to share revenue from run-of-river projects slated for the Northwest — the McLymont Creek hydroelectric project and the Volcano Creek hydroelectric project.
