As a North Vancouverite, I thought it would be interesting and beneficial to do some digging into the rich First Nations cultural history in my own backyard. The Squamish Nation is amalgamation of many bands (I just learned this!). The reason for their amalgamation in the early 1920s is eloquently explained in a great media production found on the Squamish Nation Network website. I found the use of media on their website to be outstanding, particularly the informative and interesting 15 minute video I’ve provided the link to. It’s a great example of First Nations People using media themselves to tell their own story. I hope you’ll take the time not only to watch the video, but to explore the website and learn more about my neighbours, the Squamish Nation!
