'UyNetulh|Good Morning,  

The Hul'qumi'num and Senchothen speaking people have been stewarding this land since the beginning, and were unfairly taken advantage of, and used by the settlers who came.  

My act of reconciliation for this land is to protect the connections I have made and nurture the ones yet to come. What I love about this land is the incredible natural beauty in our surroundings and the clean water that hydrates all the people lucky enough to protect this place. Thank you to the generations of Indigenous families who have protected this land. - Thank you Nayani
