The XLAP team visited the Tla'amin Nation in October of 2022 to participate in ongoing community engagement activities. Spending time with our First Nation partners is vital to ensuring the work we do aligns with the needs, rights, and expectations of descendant communities. During this field trip, members of the XLAP team gave a community talk at the gymnasium, which included showing archaeological belongings from Xwe'etay and a delicious meal provided graciously by our hosts. The November issue of the Nehmotl Newsletter includes a piece about this talk on page 6.
