Learn, Reflect and Share

salishan Place by the River is situated on the traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples, and in particular, we acknowledge our relationships with the q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie), q̓ʷɑ:n̓ƛ̓ən̓ (Kwantlen), Máthkwi (Matsqui) and se’mya’me (Semiahmoo) First Nations.

We would like to invite community members and visitors to learn from, reflect on and share the links to materials and resources that we have gathered below.
