Raven's Quest - Gr 1-3 Social Studies

Natalya and Adriana

8-year-old Natalya and 10-year-old Adriana are sisters who live in Mount Currie, British Columbia. They are from the Lil'wat Nation. When they aren't hanging out together in their bedroom, the girls love to decorate cookies and cupcakes and go sliding with their best buddies - the ,H Babies,, their 4 friends from next door. Adriana and Natalya are on the Whistler Indigenous Snowboard Team. They show us how to make traditional bracelets from cedar bark and introduce us to the Douglas Fir Tree - an important symbol in their community. Their special word is "Shrep7ul" which is "Douglas fir tree" in their language, Ucwalmicwts.
