Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council wishes to acknowledge and applaud Tsleil-Waututh Nation for their role in the Memorandum of Understanding signed on December 10th, 2021, along with Lilwat, Musqueam, and Squamish Nations and the City of Vancouver and Resort Municipality of Whistler.
This is great news and a huge, positive step towards addressing reconciliation by respecting Indigenous territorial protocols and ensuring inclusion and engagement in the planning and participation of large-scale, global events. This would make the 2030 Games the FIRST Indigenous-led Olympic and Paralympic Games!
Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council extends our congratulations to Malahat Nation on their recent partnership in the Fisheries and Oceans Canada Ghost Gear Program. Malahat Nation will undertake mapping and removal of ghost fishing debris in the Salish Sea using funding awarded by the Ghost Gear Fund over the next three years, thus improving ocean health and contributing to Canada's blue economy.
Naut'sa mawt Tribal Council is thrilled to congratulate Klahoose Wilderness Resort on soon becoming a 100 percent clean energy eco resort thanks to a grant from the First Nation Energy Business Fund. This will allow them to redesign and improve their water intake, pelton wheel (hydro-wheel), and storage capacity at the resort and draw power from the nearby creek. The project is scheduled to start soon and should be ready by next tourism season.
