Digital Sq'éwlets

The award winning project, Digital Sq'éwlets, is best described as a digital community biography that focuses on what it means to be Sq’éwlets today. It is a truly collaborative project that was led by community leaders, Elders, and youth who partnered with archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, media specialists and other content experts with enduring ties to the community. The website also contains community-led resources for educators.

From the summer of 2016 to the summer of 2017, the Bill Reid Centre hosted an exhibit built around the interactive website. The BRC display featured text, stills, and video from the website, and allowed users to interact with the site via the touch screen monitor.

The virtual exhibit was produced by the The Stó:lō Research and Resource Management Centre / Stó:lō Nation and their partners. It was developed with the support of the Virtual Exhibits Investment Program, Virtual Museum of Canada.
