After our Fall Reefnet event (Below) and with the new UVic Aboriginal Service Plan funding for Living Lab, the W̱SÁNEĆ School Board through the PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ Education and Food Systems Program, began their land-based activities with children, youth and elders. It is focused on connecting the school curriculum with the restoration of traditional willow and plants / wetland within the context of the recovery of the reefnet fishery. The Songhees Nation Education and Local Service Departments are focused on engaging youth and community in their own mapping, land and marine use planning for all Songhees lands and the Oak Bay – region Songhees Islands. Both communities are hiring local community staff and elders and creating field and curriculum guides (in Lekwungen and SENCOTEN languages) to be used in schools and community (also printable/ downloadable). Nick Claxton- X̱EMŦOLTW̱ / UVic Indigenous Faculty Lead also presented his work and led a child- focused reefnet fishery workshop at the annual Traditional Foods event at theW̱SÁNEĆ Nation’s ȽÁU,WEL,ṈEW̱ Tribal School.
