One tribe’s attempt to abolish an unjust declaration.

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, hunting on ancestral land is an aboriginal right gifted to them by Creator. A right that has legally been denied to them since 1956.
