´Celánen: Land, Culture, and Self Governance in Cheam
This project is focused mainly on gaining official recognition of the Stó:lō right to their traditional territories, and tying those property rights into cultural revitalization, land use management, community health, and economic develop initiatives. The project, thus, deals with continuing and further advancing actions designed to yield sustainable Cheam, Stó:lō, Fraser Valley, Pacific Northwest, and world communities.
The innovative, integrated sustainability project is relevant to efforts by indigenous groups around the globe.
