In partnership with Indigenous and non-Indigenous collaborators, the Xetthecum Eco-cultural Mapping Pilot Project is working as an inclusive participatory mapping program to integrates Indigenous ways of knowing and Western ecological science into an ecocultural map of Xetthecum (Retreat Cove), Laughlin Lake, and Hwta’loonèts (Grieg Creek) on Galiano Island, BC, Canada, with a focus on Hul'q'umi'num' species names and place-based stories.
