Drive to preserve

Article from the Pique News Magazine in Whistler, BC. written by Alyssa Noel
I'm beyond grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way since working with the nation. I woke up this morning to find out that our new venture has made it on the cover of The Pique Newsmagazine! After a not so humble victory dance it got me thinking... Why am I doing this? Why is it so important to want to make a difference?
The part I enjoy the most is empowering communities through mentorship. I love to watch the staff I work with learn new skills but take pride in their own culture. To see the beauty in what their traditions, language and songs represent and take a stand for what they believe in. Walking in as a stranger 5 years ago and now feeling like I’m part of the family, more than anything that’s what I want to salvage.
As we embark on this new venture please feel free to follow our adventures here or by following us on social media.
