Native Women Rising: Salish Sea's and the North, protect our water, wild-life and forests of BC to Northern Arctic Now!

Northern Wolves are at risk because they have no protection.
Our wolves depend on fish too; please protect and preserve our salmon. Northern wolf population is being hunted and killed; they are starving today. Man has done more harm in the last 50 years, and our wild-life is dying out.
Our whale population is dying from plastic.
Our whale population is dying from plastic. : Our whales are starving, let us end plastic being dumped in our oceans. (1/8)

As you know our ocean life of the Coast Salish Seas are in danger, and north of us - the Arctic.

We need protection today; not tomorrow. 

Commercial fishing from China and all fishing vessels are fishing out the salmon; 

the salmon feeds seals, whales, black bears, brown bears, polar bears, foxes, wolves, and eagles. 

Salmon has been the main source of diet for Native Peoples of the Coast Salish Peoples and Northern Arctic for centuries. 

Your support is needed world wide to end commercial fishing and abuse of our waters. 

West Coast and Salish Sea's and Northern Arctic is at Great Risk - when our sea life is at risk; so is humanity and animals that use the fish as part of their diet. 

All things are connected, and we need your help to end the abuse and over-fishing of our waters

and to stop toxic waste and dumping into our waters. 

Let us end Sport Fishing and Sport Hunting; its not the Indigenous Way to take life for sport. We respect all things, big and small.

All living things have a right to live, and reproduce. 

Give Clan Mothers a Voice on all Living things and Provide the Word of Law for our Salmon and Wild-Life -  and laws of the ocean laws, let us save our water, wild-life, and humanity.


Please help us, create awareness and consider all things in our waters, rivers and ocean before using it as a garbage dump

or fishing out our salmon. The salmon population needs healing for our bears to eat too! Our bears, salmon, polar bears, cougars, wolves, and eagles are going extinct. 

Man kind will follow shortly after.....

Slow the madness down....

relate to this your story very much. Last week was world ocean day and I actually dropped something about it here. As regards the over fishing my country just resumed on closed fishing. All fishermen were denied fishing for a period of one whole month to protect the fishes.
It was not easy since it was a commercial business for them. Their livelihood depends on it, however upon advocacy they both agreed on one month. 15 May to 15 June. Yesterday they resumed fishing. I actually hope the days are extended in the near future to protect harvest of fingerlings. Thanks for sharing.

"Conservatives; 2009 when PM Harper's $22.7- billion stimulus package was handed out to farmers he took it from the Indian moneys, never been paid back." while native people starve across Canada. Our fish dying, bears, birds, our lands, our rivers, our oceans. We need world-wide support.

Dear Cowichan,
I feel you. Our oceans around the Philippines are also threatened not only by poachers but by a giant who uses their economic and military power to occupy our islands and exploit within our territorial waters. China.
I wish you can generate funds and political support to create awareness about life below water.

Right, we need protection today and not tomorrow. We need to come together and share the responsibility of taking care our Mother Nature. Thank you for sharing this story. Hugs!

Hi Cowichan!
Our environment is our health and not to talk of water that gives life. We owe the responsibility to protect all of God’s creatures but ignorance and greed makes us to messup with nature’s gift. We shall all join you to create awareness to let more poeple know the harm the are causing when they dump waste in waters and fish out salmon. Thanks for sharing.

Greetings Th'Wulhamen. Hope you are fairing well. What a wonderful write up on creating awareness on the issues affecting wild life and the ocean. Hope companies will develop better ways to dispose off their waste and plastics to avoid damaging the ocean. And together we we hope Clan mother's will regain their Voices.
