They may currently be based in the United Kingdom, but the members of the musical group Bellacoola are originally from B.C.–as you may have guessed from their band name.
Last week, Bellacoola released a song paying homage to their B.C. roots called “Highway of Tears.” The song, and an accompanying video, is about “the many murders and disappearances that’ve taken place along that road.”
“The majority of the victims are indigenous women,” the band writes. “Most of the cases are unresolved and families are left without answers to the disappearances of their loved ones. This song is dedicated to the victims and those still fighting for justice.”
