My deep gratitude and sincere acknowledgements to the Squamish Peoples and their related communities. I am honored and grateful to walk, dance, drum, write, learn, paint, teach, breathe, and live on their original grounds of Nex̱wlélex̱wm or, Bowen Island.
I am deeply appreciative of Peter Lang Publishing, for believing in this unusual project and giving it a chance to be shared with the world. My sincere gratitude goes out to the publisher’s fine team of peer reviewers, whose thorough direction and helpful scholarly guidance was most useful. A magnificent bouquet of flowers and shout out for excellence and artful editing goes to Dani Green for her kind, supportive, open, and thorough editing. Dani, it is because of your incredibly patient reading, adding-in of commas, encouraging, and creative feed-back, that this book has made it into the world!
The community and dogs of Bowen Island, thank you. Thank you, Caroline, for your friendship, and for introducing me to Dorene and Bruce Russel. My heartfelt thanks go out to the Russels for their light-filled presence, warmth and generous hospitality.
