Youth

Welcome Youth!

Together today for our children tomorrow.

Our treaty will be a living tree for our Tomíyeqw. We are negotiating now for more lands and resources for seven generations forward.

Explore these pages to learn about treaty, find out about our annual youth forums and other fun activities. It is important for us to engage with our youth, our future!

We want to mentor youth to learn about digital media technology, governance, the arts and more, so stay tuned for ways to get involved.

Comic Book

The first volume of Kw’í:tsel, created by SXTA Outreach and the youth group X-SYTE, came out in 2012. Since then, we’ve learned that when a person is named for an animal an ending must be added to the Halq’eméylem word. Kw’í:ts’téleq begins where the original story left off. . .

Volume 2, Issue 2

Transformation

The bear tells the boy, who thinks his name is Michael Phillips, that his name is really Kw’í:ts’téleq, (Grizzly Bear).
