It has been a marathon to get to this day and it is all worth it!

Our book, In Their Hands: The Keepers of the Box of Treasures, is on its way to becoming a reality, made possible with your help and that of family, friends, supporters and the First Nations community of Alert Bay, British Columbia. 

Now it's time to catch our breath.

Next, we focus on creating more photography, recording more interviews and putting it all into a book and its accompanying online language resource.

We will be posting regular updates on our Spotlight page within Kickstarter, on our website and our Facebook page.

You should soon be receiving a Backer Survey from us, asking you for information needed to send you your Thank You. It will take three minutes to fill it out and email it back to us.

We look forward to sharing our progress with you as we take our steps forward. 

You are part of the project now!

Take care,

Sharon and Pamela
