Inheriting Resistance Update

Posted by admin on Oct 9th, 2012

No One Is Illegal Vancouver Coast Salish Territories “Inheriting Resistance: A Community History Project” came about in light of the recent passing of beloved elders and community members Phillipa Ryan and Hari Sharma. Their life and work has taught and inspired many of us in the NOII collective, as well as many individuals within the broader community. We are reminded of the stories and lessons which remain to be shared and learned from in order to create a meaningful intergenerational movement.

Over the next year, NOII will be continuing to document the untold stories of people in our communities who have been involved in and who have shaped a diversity of social justice struggles on unceded Coast Salish Territories over the past 20-40 years. We will be interviewing 10-12 people and will be posting shorter, edited videos and transcripts of interviews throughout the year. In 2013, we will be launching a booklet with compiled archival material as well as the full-length video interviews.
