Indigenous plant use walk with Cease Wyss. Harmony Garden is a community garden in the village of Xwemelch’stn, now known as the Squamish Capilano Indian Reserve. It is a space created for Indigenous Food Sovereignty 10 years in the making, which combines greenhouse, indigenous botanical garden, food crops, and education space for learning about Indigenous Plant use. Kultsia Barbara Wyss, T’uy’t’tanat Cease Wyss, and Senaqwila Wyss hold major roles in creating and maintaining this space in their community. It is an open space for keeping Indigenous food practices alive, and has been responsible for managing Mason Bee hives for many years as well. We will have performances from local Squamish artists.

STILL MOON ARTS SOCIETY – Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming (formerly Salmon Sounds in Motion)
featuring: Still Moon Arts Society Youth & lead artists STARR MURANKO, ISABELLE KIROUAC, CARMEN ROSEN & BEA MILLER
5 – 6:30 PM
Cracks in Creeks: Live Streaming will move through the space at Renfrew Park (Renfrew and east 22nd Ave). The Audience should be at the Renfrew Community Park parking lot beside the dog park and be prepared to move through the space as the performance moves.
A site specific movement performance, sonic installation, and visual eco-art presentation on the banks of Still Creek, created with Still Moon Artist mentors and youth performers. The inspiration is from the Still Creek Watershed and ecosystem where salmon spawn in urban Still Creek next to roads, train tracks, and big box stores; as well as three other artworks about Still Creek and the salmon. These include “What Comes to Light: Stories of Still Creek Lost and Found” (2017), an independently published book about Still Creek; “Still Creek Salmon Sounds” (2018), youth-created soundscapes in partnership with VIVO Media Arts; and “Fruiting Bodies” (2019), a living mushroom sculpture of a human and a salmon in Renfrew Park by Carmen Rosen & Willoughby Arevalo. Participants have co-created choreography while learning holistic ecological concepts and some Indigenous plant knowledge, then exploring how this intersects with artistic practice.
