70 mins |

Tamo Campos, Jasper Snow-Rosen
LANGUAGE(S): English


The Klabona Keepers is an intimate portrait of the dynamic Indigenous community that succeeded in protecting the remote Sacred Headwaters, known as the Klabona. Spanning 15 years of matriarch-led resistance, the film follows a small group of determined elders as they heal from the wounds of colonization to push back against law enforcement, the government, and some of the largest multinational companies in the world.

Jury Quote

Smoked Fish, loon calls, pristine waterways, ceremonial grounds and constitutions of land-based governance, The Klabona Keepers is an outstanding and comprehensive portrayal of leadership and self-determination of the Iskut village, Tahltan Territory. This film delves into the interconnections of community cultural wellness, land-defence, inter-generational strength, love and resistance. The Klabona Keepers spans categories of Environmentalism, leadership, community and Mountain culture.
