Welcome to the Salish Sea Sentinel
We sincerely hope that this monthly magazine, filled with the positive, forward-looking articles from our eleven First Nations, will carry on the ten-year legacy of Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council newsletters. The decision to publish the magazine came from our board of directors late last year.
They heard a strong message from their communities that people missed the printed version of Klahowya, the name of our previous newsletter that ‘went digital’ in March 2012.
While many said they missed the feel of a printed publication in their hands, others said that an online only publication was not as convenient. So, we have gone ‘back to the future’, but we will continue our online presence with an upgraded web site.
The name change to the Salish Sea Sentinel reflects a new direction for the tribal council as an organization. At the recent annual general meeting, our directors unanimously supported a refocusing of NmTC’s mandate to better serve our nations in the core areas.
The Salish Sea Sentinel will continue to celebrate all things Coast Salish, highlighting the enormous achievements in terms of economic development, community planning, financial management and other areas in our nations. In the coming year, we plan to make the Salish Sea Sentinel required reading in our communities and amongst decision makers in business and government around coastal BC.
Our mandate remains the same. Naut’sa mawt means Working together as one and, with your help, we will continue to do just that.
