This is an early video of Squamish Nation in BC By Harlan Smith.
The Coast Salish
 
The video above, by Harlan Smith (The Coast Salish Indians of British Columbia, Harlan Smith, ca. 1928 Canadian Museum of History, 16-0400-0008), depicts some of the activities of daily living that would have taken place on the west coast, as well as other places, before colonization. Fishing, weaving and dancing, gathering food and supplies were integral parts of life for the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and other Indigenous people who lived off the bounty of the land. 

My Gx3 Aunty Harriet (Skwetsiya Harriette Johnnie) is shown in this film not only preparing her wool with her spindle whorl for weaving, but she is also shown working on a large weaving as well as a cedar hat.

Click on the links below to be introduced to some of my ancestor family members. Although we are separated by time, they feel very close to me still. You can also learn about the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation and other Nations today, and how people continue to regain and live the way of our ancestors.

The Vancouver Sun 4 Jun 1921

Read an interview with Siamelaht and learn the legend of the Sisters. I feel very fortunate to have this documentation which not only tells us about the inside of my ancestror Granny's house, but describes some of our family as well.

I can almost hear her voice.

We are fortunate to have so many records of Siamelaht. It makes me feel so close to her, although we are separated by 20 years. Read her testimony here, and that of her daughter, my gg Grandma Annie in the Attorney General of Canada and City of Vancouver vs. Alfred Gonzalves, Case on Appeal, from 1925. Photo is from our family collection.

The Squamish name Eslhá7an translates as head bay, denoted what used to be the farthest out reaching bay enclave in the Burrard Inlet. Source: North Vancouver Museum & Archives, #7120

Skwetsiya Henriette (Harriette) Hakstn Johnnie 1928

Siamelaht had two sisters. Sally xwaywát was born about 1841 in Yekw'apsem and (Henriette (Harriet) Hakstn) -Skwetsiya Harriette Johnnie was born about 1843 in Yekw'apsem.
