Salnachiya ?e te Tsaiylu (The Forest & Me) is a presentation on our indigenous and more recent settler relationship to the land, to the forest, emphasizing the indigenous scientific, medicinal, technological and food uses of the forest and sea, while exploring indigenous and non-indigenous uses of the land, including trade and travel. We have unique and some common experiences and it shapes our relationships to the land interculturally, individually and intergenerationally.  This presentation is an exploration and a sharing between two colleagues and friends, an indigenous woman, a settler man and how the land bridges us as skalamix (human beings). Presented by Candace Campo, ancestral name xets’emits’a (to always be there) and Richard Till, smanit stumish (mountain man), from Talaysay Tours.

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.
