KAMLOOPS — It's a different way of fighting a proposed pipeline expansion by Kinder Morgan.

Members of the Secwepemc Nation are going to build ten "tiny Houses" directly in the path of the pipeline's proposed route.

The first of the houses will be built next week at an undisclosed location, but the members of the Secwepemc Nation, who are tying in with Greenpeace on the project, say the home will be built  on unceded Secwepemc territory, the largest indigenous territory the pipeline will cross.

The group is called the Tiny House Warriors. They're concerned about the possibility of a spill that could pose threats to the community. 

It's not clear from the news release whether the Warriors group have official backing from the Secwepemc leadership, or are doing this as their own form of protest.
