U’Mista is actively protecting the language, songs, and traditions in its big house ceremonies and archives. It was through teaming up with the dedicated and talented staff and supportive elders that the CBC Radio Legacy team was able to adapt into English some of the traditional legends for this project.In these legends you will hear some of the timeless Kwakwaka’wakw values: tradition of giving away to show one’s wealth, the connection to the majestic killer whales, the significance of the uligan and the cedar tree, and the influence of the islands and sea and all that they have provided for the Kwakwaka’wakw since the beginning of time.While these stories are in English, the same stories have also been produced in Kwak’wala.
