In 2022-23, two professional Reel Youth filmmakers travelled to the Haíɫzaqv community of Bella Bella on the remote central coast of British Columbia to capture the Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards (SEAS) program at the Bella Bella Community School. There are unique SEAS programs in several communities in this region.

The SEAS program is a K-12 land-based learning program that connects students with the lands, waters, knowledge holders, mentors, and seasonal harvest cycles of their traditional territories. These films were created to communicate the value of the SEAS program to potential stakeholders and funders, and to share with the Haíɫzaqv community to raise awareness around what and how the students are learning.

This film was made in the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Haíɫzaqv Nation.

In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
