Nawalakaw is a project on MakeWay’s shared platform which provides operational supports, governance and charitable expertise for changemakers.

The concept of the central design of the Nawalakw brand is the sun’s core with four circles representing the Musga’makw Dzawada’enuxw, “The Four Tribes of Kingcome Inlet”. The four stylized circles are inspired by an ancient tattoo design symbolizing the face of the sun. The rising sun is the Creator’s promise of another day and a chance for a new beginning, if we choose to take it.

“I believe that healing for First Nations youth begins with the resurrection of our language, and pride in our cultural heritage.”

K’odi Nelson

“Our rivers were never meant to be alone. We recognize the role of our land as teacher and healer, guided by our ancestors and our elders.”

Chief Dr. Robert Joseph

“It’s not too late to ensure stewardship of our land, and it’s not too late to resurrect our culture, and create opportunities for our people.”
