Culture: Culture is how we express ourselves as a people – as a Nation. The shíshálh people have a distinct language with a unique world view. Our people have always maintained a profoundly strong connection to each other as a people, within our extended families and collectively as a self-governing Nation; this connection is spiritual and the values we have as a people extend within our relationship to our land.
The Cultural Department Vision: is to serve our people and support our leadership in revitalizing culture, language and the spirit of community at all levels of our existence.
Our Mission: to design, development and deliver a diverse set of cultural programs, activities and events to our community membership at the intergenerational level to build and establish a strong community and a strong identity as shíshálh citizens; we will aspire and commit through facilitation, language and direct actions to promote and support a citizenship (community), that acts on one each other’s behalf in a supporting and loving way, rooted in conscious living, caring and sharing in a reciprocal way.
Guiding Principals and Values: mental, physical, spiritual and emotional wellness; for individuals, families, our community and society
