“Look at the little guy here on the Ski-Doo, eh,” says Dennis, a Wet’suwet’en from the Gitumden clan who moved to Witset (also known as Moricetown) at age 15. “This is the future right here.” Dennis knows everyone in every home: What clan they belong to, their clan house and whether they are working. He is proud of the reserve, and happy to point out its many band-owned and -operated features. A new health centre, a freshly paved road, seniors’ programs, a child-care facility, a learning centre, a sawmill, a gas bar, a firehall, a museum, an RV park and, soon, a tax-free cannabis retail store.
