Tsatsu Stalqayu (Coastal Wolf Pack) will perform at the September 26th Rainforest Trail Run in Central Park

Tsatsu Stalqayu (Coastal Wolf Pack)

Meet Directors for the Rainforest Trail Run, Chris Hancock and Vincent Doyle announced today the appearance of the First Nation cultural group, Tsatsu Stalqayu (Coastal Wolf Pack) on Sunday, September 26th at Swangard Stadium in Central Park, Burnaby.

Tsatsu Stalqayu (Coastal Wolf Pack) is a three-generation family group of Coast Salish singers, drummers, and dancers; the members of Tsarlip First Nation are of all ages.

The artists’ goal is multifold. “There are three major things we hope to do:  honour the natural world we are standing on, make Tsatsu Stalqayu and the Coast Salish culture as visible as possible, and to celebrate our long collaboration through showing that the two cultures can get along and work together,” says Iona Paul of Tsatsu Stalqayu (Coastal Wolf Pack).

This approach fits exactly with the organizer’s of the RainForest Trail Run.

The goal is to celebrate our indigenous culture while encouraging a healthy lifestyle through physical activity for all Canadians together.

The RainForest Trail Run will take place in the urban forest of Burnaby’s Central Park with the start and finish at Swangard Stadium.
