Tsleil-Waututh (səlilwətaɬ) means “People of the Inlet”, referring directly to səlilwət (Burrard Inlet). Since time out of mind, Tsleil-Waututh people have used, occupied, governed, and stewarded their territory. Tsleil-Waututh hold a sacred, legal obligation and responsibility to protect, defend, and steward the lands and waters of their territory, in accordance with Tsleil-Waututh law, for past, present, and future generations. This stewardship responsibility requires restoring conditions that provide the environmental, cultural, spiritual, and economic foundation for Tsleil-Waututh people to thrive. Hillary and Anu will speak about Tsleil-Waututh’s relationship with the nearshore environment, and describe Tsleil-Waututh Nation’s recent work on nearshore habitat surveys and restoration of nearshore ecosystems in Burrard Inlet. 

by Anuradha Rao, MSc, RPBio, Cert. RNS, Senior Environmental Specialist, Marine Ecosystems with the Tsleil-Waututh Nation

and Hillary Hyland, BSc, Senior Environmental Specialist and member of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation

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.
