The Klabona Keepers is a love letter to the land and a testament to the resilience of the Tahltan people—an intimate portrait of the inspiring Indigenous families that succeeded in protecting the Klabona Sacred Headwaters, an important natural habitat in northwest British Columbia. Overcoming forced displacement and residential school trauma, the Klabona Keepers show what is possible when a small but dedicated group takes a stand.
The event is free to attend. Funds from this screening go directly towards sending Tahltan youth out on the land.
