Bows and Arrows: Indigenous Workers, IWW Local 526, and Syndicalism on the Vancouver Docks

The first union on the waterfront of so-called Vancouver was organized by Indigenous workers, mostly Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh. And it was organized on an explicitly syndicalist basis as Local 526 of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), which would become known as the Bows and Arrows. The Bows and Arrows took an active, politically militant approach with a commitment to Indigenous solidarity and organized on a multicultural/multiracial foundation of class solidarity.
