Why sustainability includes culture, language, and land – Cariboo Chilcotin Coast E3

Travellers are always looking for connection, says Sunrise When the Salmon Come (Cheryl Chapman). Cheryl works with Indigenous Tourism BC to make that connection happen, assisting Indigenous communities and entrepreneurs in sharing their living culture with visitors. She openly shares some of the challenges of telling the truth about colonialism’s impacts on First Nations, and tells us how she weaves together a fuller picture of history that leads people to consider how interconnected we are with the land, other people, and all life.
