I do not come with an answer - I am a white settler.
Actually, I know less than a toddler. A toddler has already a lot of learning and experiance.
I often do not even know what I have done wrong.
How I might have caused offence.
I choose to learn and change my world view.
I have a passion and vision for doing things differently that has been in the making for over 40 years.
I do not have the right or wisdom to teach this perspective. I will be doing my own work in learning about the history, culture, and place names.
For example, I now see how the Douglas treaty was seen as a peace treaty, not a surrendering of the land. Douglas was trying to avoid a war with a much more numerous peoples upon whom they were dependant for food. The W̱SÁNEĆ peoples were angry about the killing of a boy and the destructive logging of trees on their territory. The meeting on P'Kols (Mount Doug was seen as a way of bringing peace with a promise that all the land that could be seen would be left undisturbed for the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples use.
