Hanlon Creek Essay 9

On the first day of the Hanlon Creek occupation, land defenders hung Guswhenta (two row wampum) flags on construction equipment, and held a grounding ceremony led by a local native singer. The Guswhenta is a treaty in which settlers are to not interfere with the path of Indigenous peoples and their lands, and Indigenous peoples are to do the same for settlers. We saw our struggle to stop the HCBP as our attempt to hold ourselves to this agreement by preventing further harm to Turtle Island. photo by Anna Kovler
