From the Snuneymuxw First Nation: Snuneymuxw First Nation Launches Planning for an Interpretive and Cultural Centre on Newcastle Island.
The Snuneymuxw First Nation has launched a planning process for the eventual development of an Interpretive and Cultural Centre on Newcastle Island. It is expected that within the next six months a comprehensive plan for the development of such a Centre will be completed, and Snuneymuxw will then move forward to implementation. In addition to planning for the Interpretive and Cultural Centre, Snuneymuxw will also examine the full range of alternatives for facilitating increased access to Newcastle Island.
Newcastle Island is one of our traditional village sites, and a place of great spiritual and cultural significance for the Snuneymuxw People. By embarking on this planning, Snuneymuxw is preparing for the next phase in the future of the Island – one which will see expanded opportunities for all people to learn about Snuneymuxw culture and way of life, and to enjoy the beauty of the Island,said Chief Douglas White III of the Snuneymuxw First Nation. As part of completing the planning, Snuneymuxw will connect with interested local stakeholders, as well as the Province of British Columbia, to seek their views and input.We look forward to engaging with those who are interested as this important planning work unfolds,he added.
