Wildfires & Wild Food: A fundraiser for the Yunesit’in community

Wildfires & Wild Food Fundraiser

You're invited to join West Coast for a night of music, dancing, and learning at our upcoming fundraiser in partnership with the Yunesit’n community.

The wildfires that swept BC this year devastated Tsilhqot’in territory, forcing some communities to cancel their hunting season, and leaving many communities without important sources of wild food.

The intensifying impacts of climate change pose a threat to Indigenous self-governance and sovereignty. We are working with Yunesit’in community members to host a fundraiser to highlight these issues and help stock freezers for the winter.

Get ready to dance the night away! Local stars BUCKMAN COE will uplift vibrations with their signature “dance-floor friendly roots reggae”, and DJ Young Dene will hold down the dancefloor until the end of the night. More local talent to be announced soon!

Facebook event:

Join us for a celebration of the community’s leadership and resilience, and show support for upholding Tsilhqot’in law and governance.

This event is hosted by West Coast's climate team, as part of our work to highlight the impacts of climate change on BC communities – particularly Indigenous communities that are disproportionately affected. We want to ensure that communities are not alone in dealing with the costs of climate change.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Yunesit’in Chief and Council to support food security in the community for the coming year.
