“It’s really good to be here and to be brown today,” said Rosemary Georgeson. “I love it.” Georgeson sat at a booth for Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services Society (VACFSS). Beside her, teens sold traditional teas and salves they had made. In front of the booth stood a tall model of a Te Smailetl, also known as a Sasquatch (Te Smailetl means "Wild People" in the Squamish language). A group of children involved in their programs made the Te Smailetl, who they named Jonathan.
