The Fight for Fish Lake (Teztan Biny)
This "Earth Focus" report sheds light on the struggle of the Tsilhqot'in and Xeni Gwet'in people of British Columbia, Canada to stop the construction of Prosperity Mine, a gold and copper mine proposed by Taseko Mines Ltd. The mine would destroy Fish Lake (Teztan Biny), a body of water held held sacred by the Tsilhqot'in and Xeni Gwet'in people. The Lake is part of a pristine watershed that runs to the Fraser River. Featuring the film Blue Gold made by Canadian filmmaker Susan Smitten and her team to document the impact of the proposed mine on the environment and the cultural heritage of British Columbia's native people. An Earth Focus original report in collaboration with R.A.V.E.N (Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs), a Canadian charitable organization.
