Storyboard Text

  • You may host the festival here as long as there are no permanent structures
  •  In 1995 the shuswap people and a land owner agree to terms of hosting a sundance on his ranch at Gustafsen Lake
  • In June the land owner issued an eviction notice and posted it on a sacred spear which the indigenous people took as an attack on their religion.
  • Tensions rose between the growing number of indigenous people and the ranch hands who were both armed
  • Shots were exchanged and in August, the RCMP was called in and started the biggest Canadian police operation in history
  • During the standoff in September firefights would take place but did not produce any casualties
  • The conflict would end peacefully when the indigenous people left the site following the advice of their elders
