    The new Che’ Semiahmah-Sen, Che’ Shesh Whe Weleq-sen Si’am / (I am Semiahmoo, I am Survivor of the Flood) exhibit is located on the top floor of the Big House. Through the exhibit, the Semiahmoo First Nation tell their story with a focus on their oral history, who they are as a people, and their place in the Lower Mainland. Visitors will take a journey focusing on Semiahmoo’s story as it relates to land and water, spoken from the traditional knowledge of the Nation’s Chief Harley Chappell. Throughout the exhibit, visitors can view cedar baskets, dioramas of reef net sites and summer villages, and items related to present day Semiahmoo that will tell the story of the nation and its journey in the past and present. Please join us this summer at Fort Langley’s Big House to experience this display of Semiahmoo culture.

In an effort to return to the ways of her ancestors, she makes medicines from plants she harvests from her land. All products are handmade in small batches with intention, love and respect. She enjoys all opportunities to share this ancestral knowledge through workshops and plant walks.
