The Legend of Deer Lake and Indigenous Histories of Burnaby
Presenter: John Preissl, Freelance Photographer
In partnership with Still Moon Arts Society
John shares his family’s long history from the first Chief Capilano in the late 1700's to present day. Looking through the lens of his camera, John will weave together stories of the Legend of Deer Lake, resource gathering in the Burnaby Lake Watershed, and protection of the sacred salmon and eagle habitat on the shared homelands of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples.
