Súa Cultural Group

Experiencing traditional Kitasoo/Xai’Xais culture in Klemtu, British Columbia

  The Súa Cultural Program is a summer-long cultural experience for people in the Kitasoo/Xai'xais Nation. Súa was started by local youth with a keen interest in interacting with their community and maintaining the Kitasoo/Xai'xais traditional practices. The program's goals are to provide the people of Klemtu with opportunities to visit the historic sites of their ancestors, share traditional knowledge and skills, and maintain strong connections with their community and roots. Some examples of cultural workshops we do are: drum making, cedar weaving, harvesting, fishing, song and dance, language, and territory trips.

 

Our Commitment


Súa means 'thunder' in Xai’xais.
We strive to provide the people of Klemtu with opportunities to connect with their roots and maintain the important practices of the Kitasoo/Xai'xais culture. Together alongside Spirit Bear Lodge, our sponsors, and the beautiful Kitasoo/Xai'xais Nation, we can be as powerful as thunder.
