W’uik’ala Prayer

The Wuikinuxv Nation has lived on the Central Coast of British Columbia since time immemorial. Filled with grizzly bears, waterfalls and towering mountains, their territory is picturesque. The effects of colonization have left the nation with just 60 members living in their main village at Rivers Inlet. It has also endangered the Wuikinuxv language, W'uik'ala. We were truly honoured that Wuikinuxv member George Johnson allowed us to record a prayer in his language. We'd like to share it with you
