In Celebration of National Aboriginal Day

June 21, 2008 at 12:11 pm 10 comments

It’s National Aboriginal Day and while I don’t have time to go into Vancouver to celebrate, I am paying hommage to the land and ancestors.  I live on Squamish Nation territory, do you know who’s territory you live on???

 

CBC Radio One will be broadcasting a comedy in honour of the day , delivered by the “Almost Ready for Self Government’ players…..great name and hope they are as funny as the gang at Dead Dog in the City (Dead Dog Cafe).  

 

Many Hoichka (thank you in Squamish but I probably spelled it wrong 😀 )

    Happy Aboriginal Day, scout.

    the territory around here is Chemainus first nation, the Hul’q’umi’num and Nuu-chah-nulth bands.

    Hope you get to celebrate a little!

    I’m not sure around here…Kootenai or Sixnit, I think. Maybe both.

    What Haida image is that? I love it! I love Haida artwork and I am looking for some tattoo designs.

    jj…thanks and i knew you’d know what territory you live on! it’s coming close to 3 and i’ll be able to listen to the broadcast while cleaning out my husban’s car that he lent me. that’s about as far as it goes 😀

  • 4. Wandering Coyote  |  June 21, 2008 at 2:38 pm

    Um, actually it’s the Sinixt First Nation – I misspelled in my previous comment, and I apologize.

  • 5. harpervalley  |  June 21, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    coyote, you are going to sinixt jail 😀 . that’s not haida art, that’s squamish and they use it as their logo. i’d like to get a coast salish tatoo myself.

  • 6. Wandering Coyote  |  June 21, 2008 at 7:17 pm

    Again, I apologize for my mistake.

    Squamish art, then. But what animals are featured in it?

  • 7. JJ  |  June 21, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Coyote – I believe it’s an eagle and salmon, plus there appears to be another small animal in the wing that I can’t identify. The little face in the tail probably signifies an egg.

    I live on the T’simshian territory. Ya that’s right, I pay attention sometimes.

  • 9. harpervalley  |  June 21, 2008 at 8:44 pm

    gawd, i was never good at deciphering the art. i can usually tell an eagle though 😀

    krispy!!! good for you. and to let you know, the cbc broadcast came from saskatchewan 😀
