Yuusténam̓ut cht

Yuusténam̓ut cht (Yo-STUN-ah-moat chit) means “we take care of ourselves” in the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh language. Hosted by SFU CED's Transformative Storyteller for Economic Reconciliation, Sxwpilemaát Siyám, aka Chief Leanne Joe, this dialogue project centers conversations around well-being for our current and future generations and relations. The Yuusténam̓ut cht podcast series includes discussions with Indigenous leaders and practitioners on topics related to Indigenous economic initiatives, economic reconciiation, and Indigenous ways of being. Our Fireside Conversations series includes deeper dialogues with Indigenous thought leaders.

Yuusténam̓ut cht sees reconciliation as a journey of many stories, dialogues and conversations required to move through the hard work of it all, to heal through it and commit to actions along the way.
