Katherine “Holly” Joseph

Katherine ‘Holly’ Joseph, Lil’wat Nation. Holly lives Mount Currie, British Columbia and works in Whistler at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre as a First Nations Cultural Ambassador. Her ancestral Name is txwoalt’malh, there is no meaning as it has been lost. The name was given to her by her great aunt from the Secwapmec Nation. Holly has worked as a Health Care receptionist for several years before becoming a Cultural Ambassador.

Holly has lived in Mount Currie most of her life and learned many things through story telling about the culture and traditions of the Lil’wat Nation.

She learned many crafts from family members, like beading, knitting crocheting, and leather craft.

Holly currently makes regalia for many of the First Nations performers in British Columbia and her work can be seen adorning dancers at Cultural Performances and First Nations Gatherings.
