Welcome to this AR land acknowledgement and audio tour of Whey-Ah-Wichen by Sun-Dance Chief Rueben George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. The tour is intended to ground environmental justice and Indigenous perspectives in Indigenous ways of knowing, emphasizing the TMX's pipeline expansion on this very land and water.
This tour was produced by faculty and students at the University of British Columbia and was originally introduced for a UBC course on Climate Justice. Directing and interviewing were done by Avi Lewis, shooting by Nathan Skillen, editing by Aaron Woods, and field and platform production by Laura Flores and Alina Debyser. Enduring thanks to Rueben George for his wisdom and generosity.
INSTRUCTIONS: The Cates Park entrance sign at the intersection of Dollarton Highway and Cates Park Road marks the first point. There are 4 other points to walk between, indicated by circles on the map (numbered 2-5). To ensure that you follow them in the right order, click on a circle to see its number. Audio of Chief Rueben George speaking will be automatically triggered at each point when you are within the circle. Once you start listening to the audio, try to stay within the circle to avoid disruptions in the sound. Ensure that your location settings are enabled for the Echoes app.
