Nugwa’am Ga’yusdis (I am Moses Smith) Ga’yutlan laxa Kwikwasut’inuxw dlu Namgis. (I come from the Kwikwasut’inuxw and Namgis) I am First Nations. My culture is very important to me. In Alert Bay BC where I live culture is a part of my daily life. We practice our culture at my school and in our Big House where we have traditional potlatches and feasts. I am a member of the T’sasala Dance group. I am one of the singers in the group. We educate tourists about our dances and other traditions. Our group has traveled through BC and parts of the USA. My Ada (grandmother) inspires me to continue to learn about my culture through her storytelling of our legends and history. My personal hobbies are soccer and basketball. I enjoy making people laugh.
