The Koksilah Music Festival is organized in recognition and celebration of the sovereignty of Indigenous Nations throughout BC. The Festival is run by a volunteer collective of musicians, artists, and organizers who aspire to belong to vibrant communities working towards social justice, Indigenous resurgence, reconciliation, stewardship of local ecosystems, and community-driven alternatives to the status quo. We believe in the power of music and art with a purpose, and in the importance of gathering in numbers to build our strength and amplify our voices.

Fundraising for:


The Unist’ot’en Camp is located on the Wedzin Kwah (Morice River), near Houston, BC. Energy companies including Chevron and TransCanada are aiming to push fracked gas (LNG) pipelines through Unist’ot’en territory without their consent. The Unist’ot’en homestead is not a protest or a demonstration—the clan is occupying and using their traditional territory as they have for centuries. They are protecting and utilizing their hunting, trapping, fishing, and plant gathering territories to ensure that future generations will also have the opportunity to live close to the land.
