The Nutsumaat initiative is a multi-phase project with students learning traditional weaving, language as well as local history and Stz’uminus culture.

The Welcoming Figure is, at present, being worked on by John Marston and students in the foyer of Ladysmith Secondary.  It is planned to have the figure finished by September and a special “unveiling” will be held at that time.
