We are excited to announce the return of Cultural Territories, a continuation of where we left off last Spring. This time around Nicole will invite guests to research, learn and discuss pertinent topics that affect these Nations and their sovereignty. Nicole will be leading light discussion around the plants, fibres, weaving and cultural practices of each Nation while also discussing how current day colonialism has come into play. We are excited to welcome people from all knowledge levels and group participation/discussion is highly encouraged. This is a space to learn, listen and share and we look forward to having you.
Free, online program with limited space to allow for conversational group- register early!
A device with camera and audio and internet is required to participate in this program. The session is not recorded.

Nations in Discussion: Dakelh, Wet’suwet’en and Łingít
The Nechako region is comprised of the Traditional Territories of the Łingít, Sekani and Kaska Dene in the north and the Dakelh, Wet’suwet’en further south. The land is generally mountainous, with many large lakes and rivers that have sustained a traditional economy and trade system since time immemorial. (taken from BCAFN website)
