Call for All Gitxsan Culture Teachers/ Workshop Facilitators/Artists

G.W.E.S. is happy to announce that we are working on a Gitxsan Language and Culture project for the coming New Year. As a result of recommendations and requests at the 1st Annual Gitxsan Language Symposium, we are excited to be developing gitxsanimx.com. The website will feature a directory of Gitxsan Culture teachers/facilitators, resources that are shared with permission as downloadable resources, Feast Protocols & Process Handbook, and Flashcards. We believe this project to be a much-needed addition to our already existing resources from the G.W.E.S. Media Lab. This project will be showcased at our 2nd Annual Gitxsan Language Symposium, TBA.

We are seeking teachers/ facilitators in:

Gitxsan Language 

Drumming & Singing 

Medicine Harvesting

Cedar Weaving

Moccasin Making

Medicine Pouch Making

Speaker/teacher/advocate for Gitxsan Culture*

North West Coast Art

* If you teach or speak the Gitxsan language, make medicine, harvest on the territory, write books, know about Gitxsan foods, cooking, jarring and smoking salmon or teach cultural arts, THIS MEANS YOU.
