Description Of This Tour
Join traditional knowledge keeper Henry Michel and explore the scenic Locatee Lands through the medium of storytelling as critical to reconciliation. Henry will set the stage by recounting some aspects of the workings of the “creation” stories that bind the Syilxʷ peoples to the land and explore concepts of current applications in understanding sustainability and ecosystem health through story. Participants will then have an opportunity to develop land-based stories of their own. The Locatee Lands, a fascinating mix of riparian woodland open grasslands, abounds with birdlife, so there is much to see along the way. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain insight to reconciliation through indigenous concepts of land knowledge.
