Klabona Keepers


Upcoming showtimes TBD.

(Tickets available at the door unless otherwise noted.)

Sponsored by Southeast Alaska Indigenous Transboundary Commission

The Klabona Keepers is an intimate portrait of the inspiring Indigenous families that succeeded in protecting the Sacred Headwaters, known as the Klabona, northwest British Columbia, from industrial activities. Spanning 15 years of matriarch-led resistance, the film follows a small group of determined elders in the village of Iskut as they heal from colonial wounds to push back against law enforcement, the government, and some of the world’s largest multinational companies. Nestled between scenes of stand-offs and blockades, land defenders reflect on how their history of forced displacement, residential schools, and trauma strengthened their resolve to protect the very land that was so essential to their healing journey.

The filmmaker, Tamos Campos, and at least two of the Klabona Keepers will be there to introduce the film and lead a post-film discussion.

This event is in conjunction with the Just Transitions Summit, and is free to the public with a suggested $10 donation at the door
