objective

Our primary goal is to reconnect the audience to our wałyaʕas –– through visual and social media. In an age when we're constantly connected via technology, there is a disconnect to our environment. Most have lost iisaak, maya'xala, respect for everything that surrounds us. The Greater Connection aims to bring awareness of the First Nations languages and environmental stewardship. We want to promote respect for our lands, mountains, and waters which we call home.

Founder

The Greater Connection is a project created by Sarah Étoile of Tlaahaqsak Creative. Sarah is Kwakwaka'wakw and Nuučaan̓uɫ, and takes pride in being from two strong nations. She was raised by her father and grandparents, all who taught her culture, languages, and traditional values. Sarah's background is in photography, social media and online community management, and adventure and recreation tourism. With these backgrounds, both traditional and academic, Sarah intends to respectfully share them through modern media.
