T'xwelatse: We Have to Learn to Live Together in a Good Way

"We have to learn together to live together in a good way" is a lesson that rings as true today as it did during the first contact between early European settlers and Aboriginal Peoples. The exhibit, based on the lesson by Stone T’xwelátse: an ancestor of the Stó:lō, encourages visitors to imagine what the meeting of these two world viewpoints resulted in as thousands of newcomers gathered in the Chilliwack area during the 1858 gold rush. Topics explored include: The Chilliwack Story, Gold Rush Gateway, Time Immemorial, Farms and Fences, and Faces of the Past.
