For centuries, nations have battled in court over the meanings of indigenous and settler treaty agreements. In the spirit of cel’an’en, which means “our culture, the way of our people,” To Share, Not Surrender surveys two centuries of land struggles on Vancouver Island through translations and interpretations of key treaties in SENĆOŦEN and Lekwungen languages as well as accounts from Songhees, Huu-ay-aht, and WSANEC peoples. As the struggle for land continues, this book advances the urgent task of justice and reconciliation in Canada.
