We are privileged to operate our business on ceded and unceded territories of the Peneluket, Hwlitsum & Lamalchi peoples, on what is now known as Galiano Island.
Curious about how to acknowledge the territory we are on? Access to Media Education Society (AMES) and the Galiano Conservancy have created this video to help us here on Galiano.
“AMES is a small but powerful organization in the Salish Sea. AMES programs take a community-based approach to cultural production and outreach. They result in concrete skills development, and the creation of works that prompt critical dialogue, expand horizons, and foster imaginative visions for change.” –www.accesstomedia.org
At the heart of this organization is Deblekha Guin, a fierce and heartfelt anti-racism advocate, and recipient of this year’s Intercultural Trust Award. Her generosity and determination has guided youth and young adults to share their stories and strengthen their voices in a safe and nurturing space. Support their work here
