Dale Good, hereditary chief of the Gitsegukla Wilp's House of Wii Gyet, has created a blockade so that Gitxsan Forest Enterprises Inc. cannot log Indigenous traditional territory. This has caused a dispute between Gitsegukla and Kitwanga in Northern British Columbia. Good claims the territory being logged belongs to his House, and they have not given consent. Calvin Hyzims and Vernon Smith, both heritary chiefs from Kitwanga First Nation, say the Gitsegukla Wilp's House of Wii Gyet doesn't own all the land, and they are trespassing.
