We are grateful to be doing our work on the territories of the Coast Salish and Nuu-Chah-Nulth peoples.
These are the Lək̓ ʷəŋən speaking peoples (Xwsepsum [Esquimalt] and Songhees Nations), the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples (SȾÁUTW̱ – Tsawout, BOḰEĆEN – Pauquachin, W̱ JOȽEȽP – Tsartlip, W̱SIḴEM –Tseycum Nations, and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat Nation), Scia’new Nation (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke Nation, and Nuu-chah-nulth speaking peoples, Pacheedaht Nation.
We respect and honour the Indigenous peoples who have thrived for millennia as the innovators, traders and stewards of these lands. We deeply value this connection.
