The Híɫzaqv Language and Culture Mobilization Partnership team are grateful for the support that we have received to date.

First and foremost, we wish to thank the Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre and the Bella Bella Community School for their welcome and kind invitation to work in respectful partnership in the work they are doing for their nation, and for making us feel so very welcome in their community, and to the many Heiltsuk community members in Bella Bella and beyond who have opened their knowledge and homes to us.
