We wish to acknowledge the seven First Nations in northwest British Columbia — Haida, Tsimshian, Nisga’a, Haisla, Gitxsan, Wet’suwet’en, and Tahltan — on whose traditional territories we live, work, study, and play.
We wish to thank BCcampus for funding via the BCcampus Time Investment Grant and for providing feedback and support to use the Pressbooks platform. We also wish to thank Coast Mountain College for providing funding for design work.
Thank you to Beyond Boarding for allowing us to use their photos.
Credit goes to Marianne Brørup Weston for our character drawings and to Heather Bastin for the design work and sourcing the pictures used.
A note from Heather Bastin on the design choices in the cover:
The colours of the cover art are inspired by the Four Directions of the Medicine Wheel that is common to many Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (red, yellow, black and white), along with a teal colour representing industry and government.
The concentric lines denote lines of listening, understanding, communicating and collaborating.
Thank you to our families for ongoing support.
