Standing in our Strength
Season 3 – Standing in Our Strength
In this season we will be talking with the people who work hard for our six communities and who are united in the desire to exercise our inherent right to govern our lands and territory. In the last year, we took off the mantle of the Stó:lō Xwexwílmexw Treaty Association and are now called the Stó:lō Xwexwílmexw Government. Meet some of the leaders, youth, business people, staff and more as we come together on this journey.
Guided by our S’í:wes
Season 2 – Guided by our S’í:wes
In this season we are celebrating our s’í:wes or gifts. What makes us Stó:lō? How are we connected to the land and waters in S’ólh Téméxw and to each other? We’ll talk to Elders, youth and community members. We’ll even delve into the oral archives to hear from our honoured knowledge keepers about our history and our future.
The Pulse of the People
Season 1 – The Pulse of the People
We have been in the treaty process for over 20 years and our work has led to groundbreaking changes in the way modern treaties are moving forward. There will be no extinguishment of our Aboriginal Rights and Title, the agreement will be adaptable and renewable over time and we will no longer have to take out or repay loans as we negotiate. In November 2020, the SXTA leadership asked community members to vote on the Stó:lō Xwexwílmexw Shxwelméxwelh, our Constitution, which provides the guidelines for our own way of governing our nation. In this season, we took the pulse of our people as we moved toward that milestone.
