This talk places Smithers in Indigenous history, charting how Witsuwit’en families struggled to make a place for themselves in town. While settler authorities sought to push Indigenous peoples to the margins, generations of Witsuwit'en residents fought to resist colonial dispossession and construct Indigenous space in Smithers.
