The Reefnet

E-mail Print PDF

Thank you to Phil Vernon who generously allowed Tsawout First Nation to share his song " The Reefnet" on our website.

Used with permission - excerpt from the liner notes of the 2009 album "Kitale Road"

"The southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia where I live are part of the traditional territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ, or Saanich, First Nations. A description of their traditional fishery in the book Saltwater People by the late W̱SÁNEĆ elder Dave Elliot inspired me to write this song. I have been honoured by requests to sing it at numerous occasions for W̱SÁNEĆ elders and children at cultural events and at the ȽÁU, WELṈEW̱ school."
