The chief of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug is camping out at the First Nation's burial grounds this week to protect the land from a mining activity.

Donny Morris travelled to the site after God's Lake Resources announced it is about to start drilling for gold there.

The community posted a Youtube video of the chief at the site.

Morris said he's there to protect the land. The video was posted "just to let the public know that I'm here at the site now," Morris said. "We're getting ready to be ready for the company that will be coming here to this territory."

God's Lake Resources won't say when it plans to start drilling. The company was the target of a protest by KI members and supporters in Toronto on Tuesday.
