past, present, future
This symbol represents the eye of the creator, a Coast Salish design connecting us to the past, present and future. To create our best future we must first visit our past. So let us share our culture and history with you. Then together, we can plant the seeds into uncharted territory, LIKE OUR ANCESTORS.
Klah ah men was a major gathering place for the Tla’amin people. They’d used the natural harbour to interact with others, hunt, gather food and travel along the Salish Sea not just for hundreds of years, but for thousands. It has significant importance as a critical hub culturally, but also for practical, everyday life as well. In the story-telling and sharing tradition of the Coast Salish people, that is the Klah ah men story to-date.
