<<<Background:>>>

March 16th 2018 marked Ulluilsc's 3rd anniversary.

This village has been set up by Christine Jack, a St'át'imc spiritual leader as a response to the ill logging practices of Aspen Planers. This company has knowingly desecrated an old village site and clear cut without consent.

Ulluilsc pronounced OO-Loosh translates to
“gathering place”describing the rich cultural heritage of the area.

Since time immemorial, the St'át'imc, Secwepemc & Tsilhqot'in have occupied the respected lands, to gather, hunt, harvest, trade and carry out social and political meetings.

In the last 3 years Ulluilsc has been blossoming into a small community of St'át'imc people returning to the land to live off reserve, along with supporters from all four directions.

«A Voice for the Voiceless Camp: A group of concerned peoples respectfully protecting lands and waters within the unceded St'át'imc territory (Ulluilsc). Living on the land, as caretakers to encourage a healthy future for the animals, the forest, the land and the people». – Christine Jack
