518 kilometres of the pipeline will pass through Secwepemc Territory, and placing tiny houses along this route will assert Secwepemc law, jurisdiction and block access to the pipeline.
Tiny Houses Being Built to Block Pipeline in Unceded Secwepemc Territory
from Living Big In a Tiny HouseTen tiny houses are currently being built by the Secwepemc Nation in order to block the proposed expansion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline in what some are calling the next ‘Standing Rock’.
These ten tiny homes will be strategically placed along the path of the pipeline in order to occupy the land and halt progression. Lead by Kanahus Manuel and other activists from the Secwepemc tribes, volunteer builders from all over North America have began showing up to help with the construction of the tiny homes, which are being constructed on wheels so they can easily be moved along the proposed pipeline route according to where they are needed.
Together, they are calling themselves the ‘Tiny House Warriors’.
