Older Than The Crown + Panel Discussion

Tickets:$7 Adults / $5 Students

After the deliberate separation and an unjust declaration of extinction, the Sinixt people return to their ancestral land in Canada to continue practicing and protecting their aboriginal rights.

Older Than The Crown follows the trial of Sinixt tribal member Rick Desautel who in 2010 was charged with hunting as a non resident and without a proper permit in Canada. Rick harvested an elk on the ancestral land of the Sinixt people in Vallican British Columbia Canada.

To the Sinixt, hunting on ancestral land is an aboriginal right gifted to them by Creator. A right that has legally been denied to the Sinixt people since 1956 when the Canadian government unjustly declared them extinct in Canada, despite the nearly 3,000 members existing on the Collville Indian Reservation in Washington State. Now with the Desautel Hunting Case, the Sinixt people have a chance to not only bring light to their unjust extinction by the Canadian government, but also abolish the declaration completely.

** There will be a Prayer Song and opening by musical talent and Native American Music Award nominee Tony Louie (Sinixt) from Inchelium, as well as a Panel Discussion featuring Rick and Linda Desautel Ceremonial Hunters, Mike Finley Historian, Derrick LaMere Director/Producer.
