Spakwus Slolem (Eagle Song Dancers)
” Our cultural history is steeped in tradition, spirituality, canoes, family history, legends and stories of our Ancestors. Teachings that we observe today on Tribal Journeys, paddling our sea-going canoes, to visit villages of our coastal relatives. The images of the canoe is from our Squamish Kwxulth Family (Sea-going canoe Family), and is very active on water.

Spakwus Slolem is pleased and honoured to present songs and dances of yesterday, as well as today, and feel very honoured to represent our People in a good way, as our ancestors had intended.
