Relationships with the natural world

Stó:lō relationships with the natural world (inclusive of animals, plants, and the environment) are a major part of their spirituality. The Stó:lō peoples believe that they have always lived here, within their traditional territory. Many of their origin stories have been associated with actual cataclysmic events identified by archaeologists and ethnographers. Stó:lō peoples have a strong connection with the land and with their sense of place within that landscape. Contemporary realities are inclusive of the past, present, and future on this landscape.
