We hope you find these films inspiring and entertaining. Before we begin, we invite you to watch this welcome from Tsitsayxemaat from the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw.
The offices of Georgia Strait Alliance are located on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations (also known as Vancouver) and of the Snuneymuxw Nation (also known as Nanaimo). Our staff and volunteers also work on the unceded territories of many other Coast Salish Nations. All these territories are also now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
We respect and honour the people of all territories, and acknowledge that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over in any way. We also acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we are committed to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous Nations in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
Take a moment to reflect on:
