Renowned First Nations carver and multimedia artist Rande Cook says “This story is about our land and all that comes from it… as indigenous peoples, our language, culture, art — it’s deeply rooted connection to the land.” The goal is protection of the land from old-growth logging and land revitalization for the indigenous peoples within their traditional territories.  Regarding the cedar tree, Cook says “to destroy that living organism is to take away the essence of who we are.”
