Kwelches – Welcome! Our Old People tell us we have always lived in S’ólhTéméxw (Our Land). We are Stó:lō (People of the River), a nation of tribes along the Fraser River. As Sq’éwlets, we are one of 30 Stó:lō communities. Sturgeon is our ancestor and we live where the Harrison River rounds the bend and flows into the Fraser River. This website shares our journey from ancient times to the present. Join us as we tell you our sxwōxwiyám (origin stories) and sqwelqwel (personal stories), through our own words in video, song, vision and memory.
