1) The leadership that Squamish Nation brings to planning a future for Howe Sound.

The Nation expresses our jurisdictional governance upon our lands and waters and creates modern tools based on our cultural and spiritual teachings to develop harmonious solutions to managing and assessing those lands and waters.

2) Squamish Nation are the stewards of Howe Sound since time immemorial.

Members of the Nation take responsibility for the lands and waters at birth for future generations, and we have sustained our culture and spiritual presence within the territory through 10,000 years of knowledge. We balance this with contemporary science-based outcomes to create sustainable solutions.

3) How Squamish Nation can share our perspective with others.

The Nation is implementing processes based on government to government consent and reconciliation. Our lands have never been vacant but ladened with spiritual and cultural layers. We see true reconciliation based on our land and marine use expression and providing those narratives to others helps to inform a better understanding of our territory.

4) Squamish Nation is starting a marine planning initiative for Howe Sound.

Announced in Spring, 2015 the Nation began the process of developing a Marine Use Plan based on the model of Xay Temixw (Sacred Land Use Plan). The Marine Use Plan will create opportunities to inform decisions, to manage title lands and waters in ways consistent with Squamish laws and knowledge.
