We are from the Lekwungen Nation, often called the Songhees, though it was others who gave that name to us.
For time immemorial we have been the first peoples of what is now known as the southern part of Vancouver Island. We have always had a strong oral history, but recognize the newer generations rely increasingly on the written word. The pages that follow are from us to you. The Lekwungen worldview inspires and shapes our approach to everyday life such that it impacts every facet of our lives.
