The Salish Sea Civilization, a plan to celebrate First Nations history and demonstrate the rich cultures that flourished pre-colonization in what is now Vancouver, has recently been recognized by the Georgia Straight as a “Best of Vancouver” idea for city life.

ALIVE has continued to support the Salish Sea Civilization as a project that would celebrate and educate the public about the complex and diverse histories of the first nations peoples that have made Vancouver their home for some 10,000 years, and continue to do so today.
