dc.description.abstractNotes to the Viewer: This film was made with help from the wqna=qin-x or syilx people, for our people and the ancestors. It is dedicated to all the people to help us remember to stay awake/aware in this world where the sema wants us to forget who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. When viewing this film please keep in mind the way each individual speaks is not interrupted, there is an introduction to the film about the different voices and individuals speaking in the film. The issues of concern about the 49th parallel international boundary within our traditional Okanagan territory and its effects on our people's language, and lifeways is discussed from each individual's point of view. Since this film is for the people the nsyilxwen spoken is not translated unless done by the speaker. Remembering and learning to listen with mind, spirit, and body is one of the intentions of not interrupting the speakers. Respect is in many forms and with every effort the imagemaker has tried to give the utmost respect to all the speakers who graciously contributed time,effort, and support to this project. When we learn land memory lessons it is important to completely listen with all senses to the speaker. Please do your best to listen to the land memory lessons being shared. way' limlemten_US
