Mtm gathering trip in Nuxalk

Mtm gathering trip in Nuxalk

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.

Summer 2016 Update from Nuxalk Nation

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. 

Fall Winter Update from Kitasoo/Xai’xais Community School, January 2016

OUR SEAS PROGRAM kicked off the first day of school in September with an Ocean's Day activity. Students learned directly from marine biologists about some of the sea animals which had been collected in a touch tank. Classroom teachings continued to focus on the ocean throughout September, with supporting lessons focused on traditional Xai'Xais language, culture, harvesting and cooking lessons.
