Stó:lō Territory Bus Tour
9am-6pm June 6th 2019
Registrants at the Canadian Historical Association meeting are invited to participate in a full day tour of the Stó:lō traditional territory from Vancouver through the Fraser Valley to Yale at the mouth of the Fraser Canyon, led by Stó:lō elder and cultural advisor Naxaxalhts’i, (Dr. Sonny McHalsie).
The Stó:lō are the People of the River – the Fraser River which has fed them and served as their transportation corridor and history book for thousands of years. Special stops of interest include the fishing rock known as Kw’ik-w’iyá:la (Coquihalla); the pool of origin for the sacred sxwó:yxwey mask; see the remains of a sqémél (pithouse: or in Chinook “keekwillie”) last used in the 1880’s; the site where Xexá:ls the transformers left scratch marks at a place where he did battle with Xéylxe-lamós, an Indian Doctor, and the Coqualeetza Reserve with its reconstructed longhouse, museum and history as a residential school and Indian hospital. Naxaxalhts’i will share stories about the Stó:lōconnection to the river, land, and spirits that animate their world and introduce participants to different set of place names and cultural meanings than populate the standard map of the Fraser Valley.
The tour will leave from in front of The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (1961 E Mall) at the University of BC at 9 am, stop at the Holiday Inn Vancouver Centre (711 West Broadway avenue) at 9:20 and return to UBC via the Holiday Inn by 6pm. The tour includes a bag lunch and snacks. The cost is $75 with a reduction to $35 for students and the precariously employed registered at the conference.
Please note that there are only 50 places on the bus. You can register for the tour when you register for Congress. Register now!
