Hiladi Lodge   
2021 Ma'amtagila Territory

    Over the course of several trips, I helped build infastructure at Hiladi, an old village of the Ma’amtagila.

    This was part of an assertion of Ma’amtagila nationhood led by Ma’amtagila matriarch Tsastilqualus Ambers Umbas, in coordination with broader Kwakwaka'wakw hereditary leadership. She and other members of the Matriarch Camp intend to return home to their lands and waters near Hiladi, “the place to make things right,” to affirm their Indigenous title and rights and uphold hereditary systems of governance.
