Aggatha Siah

British Columbia

Aggatha is member of the Coast Salish people and has been participating in cultural activities throughout the pandemic. The NIB Trust Fund has supported Aggatha’s goals to learn specific cultural protocols when making cedar hats, earrings, and headbands. She has had the chance to be on the land experiencing teachings and listening to stories of her family’s and community’s background. She has also been on the water in a canoe where she received teachings about the water and the relationship to it. Aggatha has also learned about feather work and regalia making for the long house.
