Elders from Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish Nations shared their knowledge and stories to younger leaders about human's connection to nature and to other humans while also acknowledging standing on Xwayxway, today known as Stanley Park. From the end of summer and beginning of fall of 2013, this four month process engaged more than one hundred people in painting the 6' X 40' mural. 


Although the participatory process was assigned by SPES (Stanley Park Ecology Society) to be installed at Lost Lagoon's Nature House, SPES rejected the mural because 'it was not ecological enough' and the stories represented may be 'alienating,' inappropriate, and offensive.' Vancouver Parks and Recreation, sponsors of this mural, are in the process of finding a new location for this public art.
