It's good that you've arrived to the PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱!
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. PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ has 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 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 Tribal School students.
PEPÁḴEṈ HÁUTW̱ is a special place where students can learn vital life skills such as indigenous food sovereignty, restoration work, and SENĆOŦEN language all while outside and in a supportive environment.
