HRD, Wing Chief
Cas Yikh

Sleydo’, also known as Molly Wickham, is a Wing Chief of Cas Yikh, a house group of the Gidimt’en Clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation, and a human rights defender. She has been the public face of a high-profile indigenous land rights movement, currently working as the spokesperson for Gidimt’en Access Checkpoint, a group that controls access to the territory of the Cas Yikh house, as a way to defend their land and its ecosystem from the negative effects of the construction of a gas pipeline.

During these past years, Sleydo’ has continuously led actions of defence of the land and sovereignty rights of indigenous peoples, demanding the free, prior and informed consent of the Wet’suwet’en Nation in the framework of extractive projects that aim to be activated in their land.
