Spakwus Slolem, (translated,"Eagle Song Dancers), are members of the Squamish Nation.
Geographically located in what is called the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.
Our traditional territory being the Howe Sound, Vancouver to Whistler area. The
Squamish have lived and utilized this area for over 10,000 years, having history
traced back to the Great Flood, and an Ice Age.
We are a Coastal people, people of the cedar longhouses, of the great sea-going
canoes, the racing war canoes, People of the Salmon. Our colourful history speaks
of things of legend, of deeds of certain members of the Smylaith Tribe (Sasquatch),
legends of the Animal Kingdom(i.e., The Raven, Seagull and Sun), which brings out
Teachings of our Squamish People, the History of Takaya, the Wolf Clan, one of our
Squamish Family's History.
Spakwus Slolem presentations brings out "Chiax", the protocol and laws of our canoe
culture, of our Longhouses. Some of our Elders today still have memories of early
years, travelling across the waters in great canoes to visit Family in distant land
, and exercising our Chiax. Spakwus Slolem presents a glimpse into this culture
through singing/drumming and dance, and audience participation.
