A shishalh Nation Knowledge-keeper shares poetry and stories


Before xwu’p’a’lich Barbara Higgins was born in 1933, members of the shíshálh Nation were waiting for her to take on the role of Rememberer or Knowledge-keeper (her ancestral name means “she weaves”). Since then, she has voiced the importance of preserving Nature, her people’s land, language, and culture through her stories, poems, and activism. See my related photos and feature about her in the winter 2022 issue of Sunshine Coast Life magazine: Barbara Higgins story winter 2023.
