Don't overharvest (K̓tsi h̓a̓gi̓uƛa)

How can we ensure the harvest is sustainable? Visit Haíɫzaqv territory, in what is now known as British Columbia's Central Coast. This collection celebrates the reciprocal relationship between the Haíɫzaqv, salmon and herring —a relationship that’s over 14 000 years old! Learn the important role herring play in the ecosystem and in the Haíɫzaqv community.

This collection was created as part of a project called "The Harvest." "The Harvest" was filmed and developed on unceded Haíɫzaqv homelands and waterways. We are sincerely grateful to the Haíɫzaqv Nation for allowing Ocean School to be guests in their territory, for sharing their stories and knowledge, and for collaborating with us for this module. All of the media and activities in “The Harvest” were developed and validated with Haíɫzaqv educators and community leaders, and Haíɫzaqvḷa fluent speakers.
