Where rivers, mountains and people meet : Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation have coexisted respectfully as neighbors since time immemorial. We have thrived on the bounty of the ocean, the rivers, and the land, living in close relationship with the world around us. Our cultures are grounded in rich, ancient traditions, and continue to grow and evolve in a modern world. We have built the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre (SLCC) to preserve our cultures and share them with others. We have treated the site with respect, building on the northern side of the property, and leaving the forested area mostly untouched. The building is designed to evoke the longhouses of our Squamish people and the Istken (traditional earthen pit house) of our Lil'wat people with a modern architectural interpretation."--Website

Court of Appeal for British Columbia : between Te Kiapilanoq (Capilano) also known as Gerald Johnston, suing on his own behalf as a Squamish Indian Hereditary Chief and person, and on behalf of all Squamish Indian People, appellants (plaintiffs) ; and, Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of British Columbia and the Attorney General of Canada, and Chiefs and Council of the Squamish Nation and Squamish Indian Band and Chief Gilbert Jacob, on his own behalf and on behalf of all members of the Squamish Nation and the Squamish Indian Band, respondents (defendants) : before the Honourable Mr. Justice Chiasson (In Chambers) by British Columbia( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The plaintiffs appealed the orders of Parrett J. striking their representative action and adding the Squamish Nation as a defendant. The Squamish Nation takes the position that leave to appeal is required and seeks directions to that effect. Held: leave to appeal is required. An order adding parties is procedural (Birrell v. Providence Health Care Society) and comes within s. 7(1)(b) of the Court of Appeal Act. The judge specifically left open the plaintiffs<U+2019> ability to pursue claims as individuals and did not finally dispose of any community held rights. The situation is analogous to orders staying proceedings in class actions (A.W. and D.W. v. H.M.T.Q. in Right of B.C. and Samos Investments Inc. v. Pattison et. al.)."--Court of Appeal website index page as viewed June 12, 2008
