We are so excited to work with Talaysay Tours for this all-new Teachings of Birds program. Join Cultural Ambassador and Talaysay Tour’s co-founder Candace Campo, as well as Wes Nahanee, as they walk through the land now often called Stanley Park, and share Indigenous Science and Coast Salish stories tied to the significance of birds you can see in the area. This online walk is meant to help you identify some local bird relatives as well as gain depth and insight into their stories and significance.
If you are Indigenous and interested in attending this program, please sign up for the free community-building version of this this session in early May by clicking here.
*Tickets must be purchased in advance. Fees for this program are based on a sliding scale – you choose what you pay! The sliding scale is slightly higher on this program and with a limited number of the cheaper tickets, but it is still less expensive than a normal in-park Spoken Treasures Tour. Your contributions help support our online programs and this fabulous local Indigenous-led company! Ticket sales close 30 minutes before the start of the program.
**This program will take place on Zoom, so please make sure you have Zoom downloaded well in advance of the webinar. A Zoom link can be found within your confirmation email, and will also be sent out one hour before the start of the program. Only one ticket required per household.
***This is a pilot program with an external educator, so at this time we won’t be sharing a recording for this program.
We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
