Photographer Gary Fiegehen of Vancouver has been photographing the British Columbia landscape and working with First Nations communities for more than three decades. For the past two years he has helped the Lil’wat people of Mount Currie document their culture and traditions, gathering images for the new Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre at Whistler, a companion book, and related roadside kiosks along the Sea-to-Sky Highway. He has joined hunting and fishing parties, tagged along on jaunts to gather mushrooms and cedar roots, spent time with carvers and weavers, and attended cultural events. Recently, he also received special permission to attend a traditional naming ceremony for the feature story “A little girl gets her name,” appearing in the Fall 2010 issue of British Columbia Magazine.
