Sechanalyagh/thank you to everyone who submitted their questions and feedback on the Nexwagwezʔan – Dasiqox Tribal Park Community Vision over these past five months. We’ve received numerous e-mails, in-person comments from our information sessions in Williams Lake and Big Creek, our tabling at Tsilhqot’in gatherings and a presentation to the Cariboo Regional District, and nearly 2,500 pledges of support (including one from David Suzuki!).
Our next step is to put together a summary report of what we’ve heard, including an FAQ, for Xeni Gwet’in and Yunesit’in leadership, which will also be shared with the public via this website in the coming months – notifications will also be sent out on our e-newsletter list and our Facebook & Twitter accounts. We will also be sharing what we learned at our upcoming community workshop sessions in the six Tsilhqot’in communities in October & November.
The information collected will inform the next step in the Nexwagwezʔan – Dasiqox Tribal Park management planning process for 2018-2019, with another round of public feedback to follow.
