Featuring stunning photographs & glimpses into rich Esk'etemc heritage, this photobook commemorates the historic event of May 8, 2017. On this day, the Esk'etemc of the Secwepemc nation declared title and rights over Esk'etemculucw, the traditional territory and lands inhabited by their ancestors for thousands of years. It was a day of celebration and ceremony for the community. All Photography by Casey Bennett.

All proceeds from this photobook project will go directly towards further Esk'etemc print & media projects! 

 "There are a wealth of stories waiting to be told.”
