Artist: Where Rivers Mountains and People Meet
Where Rivers Mountains and People Meet.
Our Squamish and Lil’wat ancestors and leaders protected and preserved our knowledge systems through practice, rather than the written word. It is by our people’s tenacity, grace and collective memory, passed on from generation to generation, that we maintain an intimate connection to our lands and traditions.
This book reflects a small part of the Ancestors’ teachings that we carry in our hearts and beings. This beautiful collection of photographs and words tells stories of our relationship with the lands and highlight the ancient gifts of cedar carving and weaving, canoe building and textile production as well as the rich traditions of hunting, fishing, and gathering. Through this book, we share legends and spiritual messages that connect our people to the land from ancient times to modern life.
