The operations philosphy at the Coqualeetza Cultural Centre is that the centre belongs to the Sto:lo people but open to all aboriginal peoples, students and educators. The people we serve identify culturally relevant programs and services. Programs and services enhance self-esteem and pride while fostering effective social adjustment through the traditional way of teaching and learning from each other. Program development undergoes extensive verification processes in keeping with respect, honour, accuracy and integrity. Our reality, our truths, our values and our lifestyle are embodied in our notion of place, our love of the land, and our link to all creation.
