Future head of Yaałuuwaštak̕amałtḥ, Fredrick Cook, talks about tolerance

Future Haw̓iih Council member  for Yaałuuwaštak̕amałtḥ (Yaalthuu-a/Jeff Cook’s house), Fredrick Cook, believes that building respectful relationships is key to success: “People who live here, are here to stay and we need to learn to get along and learn from each other.”

He shares his concern about First Nations people’s future and suggests reconnection with the culture, discovering the stories behind artwork, increasing cultural programs and knowing your roots (family trees) as other ways to keep the Huu-ay-aht legacy intact.
