We share a post from Luke Mack dated March 3, 2017 about a mtm (sea urchin) harvesting field trip.
We took students out on the inlet to gather mtm over the span of two days in early March. We had the wisdom of Stanley King, Nuxalk elder, the guidance of Ernie Tallio, Coastal Guardian Watchmen Program Coordinator, and the help of Darwin Anderson, certified commercial diver, to help harvest mtm.
The 2016 Nuxalk Summer SEAS Internship program was successful yet again in providing a wonderful SEAS Program learning experience for our youth in Bella Coola. This year’s program found a balance between providing our youth with opportunities to work with, learn from, and network with organizations involved in their own form of stewardship within Nuxalk territory.
