Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Generational Plan
Through analyzing member ideas, integrating Census data, and reviewing feedback with Elders, the Community Working Group, and staff, we have identified seven themes. The following seven themes will each become their own chapter in the Generational Plan.
Land, Water, Air
Our cultural and spiritual connections to our traditional territory and our responsibilities to protect and take care of our lands and waters for the health of our people.
Ways of Being and Doing
How we access, honour, and share our Sḵwx̱wú7mesh ways of being including our culture, language, and history.
All of the ways we support and empower Sḵwx̱wú7mesh people to learn, share, and access knowledge throughout all stages of life.
Trust, communication, accountability, respect, and responsibility. Governance speaks to the way we make decisions, how Council governs, and how we communicate with one another.
The physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health, wellness, and wellbeing of our people.
The ways we work and the ways we empower our people to contribute to the world and build wealth now and in the future.
Housing and Community
How we build our communities to house and support our people to feel connected, safe, and healthy.
We will continue to engage with members to confirm what we’ve heard, refine, and prioritize actions, and develop our generational vision. In addition to continuing with Elders lunches, Community Working group sessions, and youth events, we’ll soon begin interviews with community leaders to gather their knowledge and insights.
We’ve been reaching out to hear from members around these key themes and will continue to do so as we move into the next round of engagement.
