We are deeply grateful for, and respectfully acknowledge that the lands upon which we and all our Central Island Artists work, live and play are the unceded traditional territory of K’ómoks, Homalco and Tla’amin first nations, and the Te’mexw Treaty Association. Te’mexw Treaty Association is a non-profit society formed of 5 Coast Salish First Nations- Songhees, Nanoose (Snaw-Naw-As), Beecher Bay (Scia’new), T’Sou-ke and Malahat.  The languages spoken in these regions are Kwakwala and ʔay̓aǰuθəm (eye-uhh-juu-eth-em) Island Comox.

We encourage our visitors to learn more about each of these distinct and vibrant nations:

We have some folks to acknowledge for lending their expertise, skill, talent and product to this project.
