(It's good that you've arrived to the blossoming place)
The name "PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱" means "Blossoming Place" in the SENĆOŦEN language. This language is spoken by the W̱SÁNEĆ Nation and is part of the Salish Straits language family. We have set roots down in W̱JOȽEȽP (Brentwood Bay) at the ȽAU,WEL,ṈEW̱ Tribal School grounds.
We run a native plant nursery that is dedicated to house seeding and propagating native plants to be transplanted back into the territory by students. We also have an active veggie and food garden within our nursery that is dedicated to the ȽAU,WEL,ṈEW̱ students.
PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ is a special place that students get access to learn vital life skills such as indigenous food sovereignty, restoration work, SENĆOŦEN language, all while outside and in a supportive environment.
