There's going to be a plant sale at Fernwood Square in Lekwungen territory to raise funds for Snuwuyth (Snuwuylh) Lelum.
All plant sales will be by donation (so you could donate tetlas or cash) and all donations will go to Snuwuyth Lelum.
Thank you to Krista Raphaelle for making this happen.
More information is available on Facebook at:
Plants available include:
1000 year old tobacco
Jack o' Lantern pumpkin
beans- Black Coco, Pinto, Derby, Orca
fresh cut herbs

Here are a few things that would really help grow the tetla economy. If you know someone who is in any of these businesses or would like to be, please suggest that they check out the tetla website at www.tetla.org and get in touch with the Tetla Tsetsuwatil using the contact info on the website.
* Hair stylist or barber
* Auto mechanic
* Gas station
* Grocery Store
* Native artists
People like these would be certain to get more customers if they allowed payment 100% in tetlas and might get some if they would accept any portion of their price in tetlas.

The May 20 Snuwuyth Lelum Dinner and Information Night mentioned in the previous article will include native artwork for sale. If you have any tetlas, bring them as at least part of the price for such items can be paid for in tetlas.

Come out with friends and family! May 20, 2013. 6:30 pm. Esquimalt big house.
We are trying to build a big house to house Willie Seymour's dream of the Snuwuyth Lelum project. Snuwuyth Lelum is a project designed to give all people an opportunity to learn about the language and culture of Coast Salish / Hul'qumi'num speaking peoples. It's for residential school survivors, foster children, '60's scoop babies to connect with their language and culture in a way that is healing and positive for them and for the communities they belong to.
Tom Swanky will be giving a presentation on the book he has written about how smallpox was deliberately used to infect our people so that our lands could be stolen more easily by the settlers and government.
Everyone is welcome to the dinner and we welcome any and all support for the project.
If you would like to start learning the Hul'qumi'num language, please contact Meaghan Champion for the first two lectures that are now available in MP3 format. Email: email@example.com or call 778-440-1102.
The Esquimalt big house is located right next to the Esquimalt Nation Administration office which is at
1189 Kosapsum Crescent
Victoria BC V9A 7K7
