Recording the History of Sto:lo First Nation

History student Stephanie Danyluk spent four weeks this summer with the Sto:lo First Nation (Fraser River, B.C.), while taking Keith Carlson's ethno-history field school.

In an interview with The StarPhoenix, Stephanie speaks of the significance of her experiences:

"'The elders told us that now that we've heard these stories, it's our responsibility to share them,' said Danyluk.

'We weren't just witnesses who were sitting and observing. We were a part of it.'"

What a great way to spend part of the summer!
