Tara Marsden & Trixie Bennett in the Nass & Unuk Watersheds
This week, Danielle meets with Tara Marsden and Trixie Bennett. While these two women live on separate sides of the Canada-USA border, they are linked by their interwoven watersheds--the Nass and the Unuk, home to the world-class salmon rivers that originate in northwest BC and flow into Southeast Alaska. These iconic rivers and their watersheds have been centers of culture, commerce, and biodiversity for thousands of years and are the lifeblood of the numerous communities and nineteen federally recognized tribes of the region. Yet they face threats due to a large-scale mine that is in development at their headwaters.
