Abstract
This project presents five new Hul'q'umi'num stories about the land and sea, created with the help of my elders. The Coast Salish people of the Hul'q'umi'num' territory have a deep physical and spiritual connection to the world around us. We are taught that our language is an important way that we connect to our world. Many of our youth and families are influenced by modern life and struggle to see the importance of learning our language. The purpose of this project is to engage the hearts and minds of the learners while connecting them to the world around us. I point out the need for mentors and teachers to capture the curious minds of our youth in their language learning journeys through authentic materials.
