“Little rivers matter too, they need love like me and you

Maybe you’ll find a little salmon in there, maybe you’ll find a toad
Maybe you’ll find a crab or two, be sure to follow it where it goes
Pause for a minute, get lost within it, wander away with the stream
Slow down, take your time, maybe you’ll find that

Little rivers matter too, they need love like me and you

Can you feel in air, it’s everywhere, if we all learn to care, love one and share
It’s you, him and she, us, them and we, if one love you want, then one love you see
So forget about the anger, forget about the hate, forget about the darkness, what darkness creates
Go on, find yourself some love, some light,
Forget your wrong, find your right

Little rivers matter too, they need love like me and you

I been thinking about our future, thinking about our kids,
Thinking about the world, the world they’ll have to live
It’s back to land, it’s back to the dirt, it’s back to together and from the lessons we’ve learnt
We’ll find a new direction, build a new path, a brand new tomorrow, one that’ll last
It’ll have to be all for one and one for all cause there’s a hell of a lot of people on this tiny little ball
But I said we can do it, I said there’s a way, I said it’s together, I said it’s today

Little rivers matter too, they need love like me and you

from Us, released March 8, 2018
Little rivers was sung and recorded at Knox United Church in Terrace, BC on the traditional territories of the Tsimshian people. We sang in support of everyone who is working tirelessly to protect the Skeena Watershed and all the people and species that it supports. In 2015, Petronas announced that it had plans to build a massive fracked-gas export facility in the estuary of the Skeena River. If built, this project would jeopardize the health of the entire watershed due to the risk it posed to Skeena salmon.

In response to this project, members from the Tsimshian Nation constructed a camp on Lelu Island and occupied their unceded land for more than two years, confronting surveyors and protecting the island. The people involved in this camp made deep sacrifices for the land and waters that give all of us life.

Finally, after years of resistance and hardship, the water protectors were rewarded with the news that Petronas would be walking away from their LNG proposal in the mouth of the Skeena River. For now, Skeena salmon are free to grow in the protection of the Skeena estuary. As long as people are willing stand up for the land and their rights, the Skeena will remain one of the most flourishing and supportive ecosystems in the world.
