Squamish Community Forest Gets Green Light

Wonderful news! The provincial government granted Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) and the District of Squamish a Community Forest Agreement. “For generations, our forests provided both cultural significance and economic benefits for our people,” said Nation spokesperson Wilson Williams (Sxwíxwtn), in a news release. “Our Indigenous know-how, working in partnership with the District of Squamish, will help create wealth and prosperity for both our communities. More importantly, it is a significant step in the long process of reconciliation as our Nation seeks to reclaim rights that were taken away from us through racist and unjust policies.”
