This course tells the story of the Ucwalmicw (the Lil’wat people) from a Lil’wat perspective. This story is represented in the oral tradition, passed down in oral texts from past generations of speakers. The knowledge was transmitted in Ucwalmicwts (the Lil’wat language) and we will explore what language can tell us about the Lil’wat people and their relationship with the living world.
