Sinixt Nation: Extinct or Not?

 The other day the injunction sought by Sunshine Logging against the Sinixt blockade on Perry Ridge in the Slocan Valley was denied by the courts.

So, the Slocan Valley advocacy group is one step closer to the long-awaited Perry Ridge Nature Conservancy that the Sinixt Nation and the Perry Ridge Water Users Association have worked so hard and long towards achieving.

But, it also raises another question…

Now that the Sinixt Nation has been recognized by the courts, does this mean that they are no longer considered ‘extinct’?

I think Department of Indian and Northern Affairs has some work to do, don’t you?

Oh, this is getting good…

Congratulations, folks!
