Hul’q’uminum language signs unveiled at Wul’aam Park
Three new trailhead kiosk signs with Hul’q’uminum language were unveiled at Wul’aam Park recently, including one funded and constructed by the Rotary Club of Chemainus. Acting Mayor Debra Toporowski thanked the Rotary Club for this informational kiosk located on Echo Heights at one of the entrances to the park.
As part of the National Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration on June 21st these kiosks were presented to our community and to the Elders of the Penelakut Tribe. Trail names and signage are in Hul’q’umi’num, the language of First Nations Peoples in the area, including the Penelakut who would pass through the area around Wul’aam Park on their vision quests and to gather medicines.
Working on the project was Daylon Heath, Mark Staples with supervision offered by Mana the Wonder Dog
