Walking With My Ancestors

BY NICOLE PREISSL
@ VOL 49 ON JUN 27, 2019

Nicole Preissl, an Indigenous designer from Vancouver takes us along her journey in discovering her relationship to the land and its stories. Nicole shares the culture and history of the First Peoples through interactive walks along the streets of False Creek. She uses rope-making with plant materials as a way to connect participants with the land around them and each other. In the end, these are not to be read as utilitarian tools, but tools for the transportation of stories.
