Gidimt’en Tiny House #2

Thanks to an anonymous donor, we had enough money to build a second tiny house in one summer for the Gidimt’en (a clan of the Wet’suwet’en nation). 

I was working under the lead of my good friend Catherine Wallace, who has now built 6 tiny homes for front lines Indigenous resistance. She managed to find two flats of cedar siding, mill rejects, at an absolute discount so the entire thing is clad in cedar - outside, inside, trim... It smells like a sauna!  

Once again, it was an incredible experience to be part of a community build, with some 40+ people coming together to build a house over the course of 8 days. Aside from the actual building people cooked lunch every day, made silk screen shirts, brought snacks in the afternoons, and organized workshops for the evenings (ranging from street medic work, anti-police organizing, ally-ship, and naloxone training).
